Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCR-3802) User Management: API for System Users
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2017 12:55:51 GMT

Julian Reschke commented on JCR-3802:
-------------------------------------

Note that the changes for this ticket are *both* in Jackrabbit and in Oak, which is very unfortunate
for later tracking. There should have been two separate, linked tickets for this.

> Apache Sling recently added the ability to define dedicated service users that allows
to replace the troublesome {{SlingRepository.loginAdministrative}} with {{SlingRepository.loginService}}.
> In a default Sling repository backed by a Jackrabbit/Oak content repository this results
in user accounts being created for these service users.
> Since these service users are never expected to represent a real subject that has a userId/password
pair or profile information editable by this very subject, I figured out that it may be useful
to cover these service users with the following API extensions, which would allow us to identify
if a given user account is in fact a service (or system) user.
