Subject RE: Cocoon 2.1 Authentication Bug? *Please* Help
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2003 07:56:24 GMT

Yes, I don't have roles since I'm using the LDAP authentication, all users are "Admin" at
this moment.

Do you think to create a static list in a file or database and check which role has the user?

I have thought about creating a static list but my problem is that I have to enter ~1000 users
in this list (I have about 20'000 users but only ~1000 have special roles). The solution is
maybe to use the groups defined in the LDAP repository, you would have ~10 groups instead
of ~1000 users in the static list. But in you have groups, you have to use a LDAP query to
know if the authenticated user is in a group. It seems a bit complicated, no?

What do you think about the best practise?

I guess from the above that you don't have roles. So, I would give
each user a default role and create a static list of roles with
this one role.
