Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-131) mixed up authenticated with authorized in several messages
Date Sat, 12 Jan 2008 18:11:33 GMT


Andrew Jaquith commented on JSPWIKI-131:

I don't agree with the statement that it's "confusing for the user." Most end-users have no
idea about the difference between authentication and authorization. But I agree it's confusing
for security dorks. :)

This is pretty low priority, but I agree we should fix it. I'll take a look in my copious
free time, and I advise others to also. Because most of the strings are internationalized
now, we'll need to coordinate with the various committers.

> Several messages contain authenticated where authorized is meant, e.g. on the info tab
of a wiki page "Only authenticated users are allowed to delete pages." occurs when a (maybe
authenticated) user isn't authorized to delete pages (same with other access rights).
> This is quite confusing for the user, but as easy to fix.
