Michael Dürig created JCR-3634:
----------------------------------

             Summary: New method: JackrabbitRepository.login(Credentials, Map<String, Object>)
                 Key: JCR-3634
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3634
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: jackrabbit-api
    Affects Versions: 2.7.1
            Reporter: Michael Dürig


As discussed [1] we need a way for passing session attributes on login without having to fall
back to credentials. The latter might not support credentials or not be present at all when
authentication is handled externally.

I suggest to add the following method to JackrabbitRepository:

/**
 * Equivalent to <code>login(credentials, workspace)</code> where
 * <ul>
 *     <li><code>workspace = attributes.get(ATT_WORKSPACE_NAME)</code>,</li>
 *     <li><code>credentials</code> carry all and only the attributes passed
 *     through the <code>attributes</code> map.</li>
 * </ul>
 *
 * @param credentials  the credentials of the user
 * @param attributes   the attributes to put into the session
 * @return a valid session for the user to access the repository.
 * @throws javax.jcr.LoginException  if authentication or authorization for the
 *     specified workspace fails.
 * @throws javax.jcr.NoSuchWorkspaceException  if the specified workspace is not recognized.
 * @throws javax.jcr.RepositoryException  if another error occurs.
 */
Session login(Credentials credentials, Map<String, Object> attributes);
