Subject [jira] Reopened: (CAMEL-2796) camel-spring-security: provide reference to the policy when authorization fails
Date Wed, 21 Jul 2010 18:40:51 GMT


Paul Mietz Egli reopened CAMEL-2796:

Willem, thanks for the update.  There is still an issue with this change, however.  If the
SpringSecurityAuthorizationPolicy.authenticateIfRequired() method throws an exception (for
example, a BadCredentialsException in the case where the username or password is incorrect),
the policy ID header will not be set, which means that it won't be available for the thrown
CamelAuthorizationException.  The fix is pretty easy -- we just need to move the code which
sets the policy ID header to the top of the try/catch block.

> While it is possible to set up different policies to enforce authorization rules on Camel
routes with the new camel-spring-security plugin, there is currently no way to tell which
policy was being enforced when a is thrown.
 It would be very helpful to have a reference to the policy ID in the CamelAuthorizationException
or in the headers so we can use it in the onException handlers.
> For example, let's say you have two policies:
> {code}
>   <authorizationPolicy id="user" access="ROLE_USER" authenticationManager="authenticationManager"
>     xmlns="" />
>   <authorizationPolicy id="admin" access="ROLE_ADMIN" authenticationManager="authenticationManager"
>     xmlns="" />
> {code}
> You also have two routes which use these policies:
> {code}
>     <camelContext id="myCamelContext" xmlns="">
>           <onException useOriginalMessage="true">
>             <exception></exception>
>             <handled><constant>true</constant></handled>
>             <to uri="log:auth_error" />
>         </onException>
>         <route>
>             <from uri="direct:adminStart"/>
>             <policy ref="admin">
>                 <to uri="mock:end"/>
>             </policy>
>         </route>
>         <route>
>             <from uri="direct:userStart"/>
>             <policy ref="admin">
>                 <to uri="mock:end"/>
>             </policy>
>         </route>
>     </camelContext>
> {code}
> Both of these routes will fail with an AccessDeniedException if the user doesn't have
the proper role, but it would be desirable to handle exceptions for the ROLE_ADMIN failure
differently than the ROLE_USER failure, maybe by using a <choice> element in the <onException>
> I know we have the CamelFailureEndpoint header, but this isn't very useful when more
than one route uses the same authorization policy.
