Subject Re: Filtering query results
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2009 18:51:39 GMT
Thank you much for your responses guys. I do not have ACL. I need to
make a web service call to find out if a user has access to a
document. I was hoping to get search results, call the web service
with the IDs from the search results telling me what IDs the user has
access to, and then filter others before returning back to the user.
ACL and role based fq is definitely some food for thought. I will need
to figure out the synchronization issues.
