Subject RE: RE: How to put user data into SunspotDemoPortal-session at logon time
Date Wed, 20 Mar 2002 06:53:57 GMT
Hi Peter,

all your pipelines are wrapped (secured) by the sunRise-auth action
with the handler and the application parameter, for example the
sunLets:

      <map:match pattern="sunspotdemo**">
		<map:act type="sunRise-auth">
			<map:parameter name="handler" value="sunspotdemohandler"/> 
			<map:parameter name="application" value="sunspotdemo"/> 
               
 			<map:match pattern="sunspotdemosunlet-*.xml"> 
				<map:generate src="sunspotdemo/resources/auth/sunlet-{1}.xml"/>
				<map:serialize type="xml"/>
			</map:match>
            </map:act>
      </map:match>

The sunRise-auth action provides several key/value pairs that can be used
inside the sitemap like the ID of the current user, the role etc.
So your example could look like this:

		<map:act type="sunRise-auth">
			<map:parameter name="handler" value="sunspotdemohandler"/> 
			<map:parameter name="application" value="sunspotdemo"/> 

                  <map:generate src="application.xml">
                   	   <map:parameter name="user_id" value="{ID}"/>
                   </map:generate>
                   ....

HTH
