Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1204) Add new userClass to ACI system for permitting access to subordinate entries of a User
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2008 11:53:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1204?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12616452#action_12616452
] 

Eugen Paraschiv commented on DIRSERVER-1204:
--------------------------------------------

I think this will an important feature of the ACI system, as it will add much needed flexibility
and allow for many operations which would otherwise be impossible. The way the current ACI
works, there is no way to set rules of access for the subtree of the current user, so this
will allow the user to set one rule for a whole group of users, so that each user can access
his own substructure. This propriety (a user having access to his own substructure) is not
only very important, but also very intuitive, because there is no reason why a user would
have access to his own entry and not his substructure. I can't wait for this to make it's
way into an official release.
