Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-2446) Allow for the registration of custom privileges.
Date Wed, 23 Dec 2009 20:00:29 GMT
Allow for the registration of custom privileges.

                 Key: JCR-2446
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2446
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: jackrabbit-core, security
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Mat Lowery

I would like for Jackrabbit to be able to write and read a custom privilege.  In this case,
the privilege I want to add represents the right to execute a file.  While this privilege
means nothing to Jackrabbit, I can use it in the "execution engine" of my app to allow or
deny the execution.

Here are some related issues:

* PrivilegeRegistry is accessed statically in some parts of the code.  This might need to
change if PrivilegeRegistry is pluggable.
* PrivilegeRegistry.ALL is the result of ORing all known bits.  Why not make this -1 (all
bits enabled) to future-proof this constant?
