Subject Re: AW: AW: AW: remove read-access for everyone from a principal ACL based workspace
Date Fri, 11 May 2012 08:57:07 GMT
hi ferry

ok... i assume everything is fine when it comes to access control
enforced on items but your user isn't allowed to access the workspace.
since the workspace isn't an item in the repo it needs some special

in the current jackrabbit-core this is controlled by a separate
WorkspaceAccessManager. there are a few implementations in jackrabbit
core (see below) and again it's configurable. if i remember correctly
it's part of the SecurityManager configuration of the repository.
something like

    <SecurityManager class=...>
       <WorkspaceAccessManager class="..." />

the following implementations are part of jackrabbit core:

a SimpleWorkspaceAccessManager: dummy implementation that always
   returns true
b default implementation in DefaultSecurityManager: allows true if
   the root node is accessible. that was the first try but it turned
   out that this wasn't really meeting our own requirements.
c default implementation in UserPerWorkspaceSecurityManager: it is
   granting access to a given user if the latter is present in the
   workspace.... that one doesn't work with the default setup on b
   unless the users are stored in the same workspace (instead of that
   extra workspace for users that we had at that initial stage when
   b) was built.

you may check which version you are having in your setup and possible
reconfigure it to something that meets your needs.

hope that helps
