Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCR-3010) Introduce new default group whose members can add contribute members to the userAdmin group
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2011 14:50:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3010?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13067757#comment-13067757

angela commented on JCR-3010:

the UserAccessControlProvider is a very simple implementation of the access control provider
interface. if you need additional logic i would suggest to use a different ac-provider that
allows to specify permission on a very fine grained level. extending the UserAccessControlProvider
is not worth the effort IMO.

>          Components: jackrabbit-core
>            Reporter: Markus Joschko
>            Priority: Minor
> There is a check in the UserAccessControlProvider that effectively forbids everyone but
the admin to add users to the UserAdmin Group. 
> This makes delegated administration of users where the admin user is not available to
the "application administrators" impossible.
> As it is a security risk to allow every member of the group-admin group access to the
user-admin group, I'd like to ask to either allow members of the administrator group to add
user to that group or
>  to add an additional group user-group-assignee-group (maybe with a better name) with
that right.

> 463                     - make sure group-admin cannot modify user-admin or administrators
> 464                     - ... and cannot remove itself.
