Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: CLOUDSTACK-8562: Dynamic Role-Based API C...
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:38:57 GMT
Github user rhtyd commented on the pull request:
    - presently, setting bitmask to 0 in does not disable the API but
that no roles would have that API; though if an API through its `authroized` annotation enables
itself for a roletype that will be considered
    - this feature implements a DENY rule that is checked before annotations are checked to
provide a mechanism to disable an API (or group of APIs if a wildcard rule is used) that could
have been enabled by the annotation (for example)
    - Existing users are not migrated automatically, they continue to use static-checker
    - file is only removed from codebase, after an upgrade this file won't
be removed by the deb/rpm packages
    - New users and installations are no longer encouraged to use the old static-checker,
therefore with the aim of deprecating the static-checker over time dynamic-checker is enabled
by default
    - Any change can introduce side-effects and bugs but that does not mean we should stop
innovating or stop improving cloudstack; such an attitude would be harmful for any project
    - I really appreciate your code review, improvement suggestions and testing feedback instead,
on this PR. Thanks.
