             Summary: Authority Service doesn't return same set of tokens for user at query
time as the set used for ingestion, when using Alfresco
                 Key: CONNECTORS-1473
             Project: ManifoldCF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Alfresco webscript connector
         Environment: Alfresco:
Installed Schema	6022
Installed Version	4.2.0 (4576)
Server Schema	6022
Server Version	4.2.0 (4576)

ManifoldCF - built from source using the latest sources about a month ago

Solr - 6.6.0

            Reporter: Phillip Rhodes

Using ManifoldCF to index content from Alfresco into Solr, and using the MCF SearchComponent
to restrict access on the Solr side, I'm seeing the following unusual behavior:

1. I have an Alfresco server storing documents.   There are 65 docs in
the built in "sample" space, which defaults to allowing access to
2. With the MCF SearchComponent installed into Solr, if I pass the
AuthenticatedUserName parameter with any value, I get back all 65
documents as expected.
3. I added another space in Alfresco that only allows access for 4
specific users... testuser1, testuser2, testuser3, and testuser4. If I
log into Alfresco as any of those users I can view and/or upload
content to the space.
4. I put 7 documents in that space, and re-indexed with MCF.
5. Solr now shows a total of 72 documents for the core in question.
6. But, if I pass AuthenticatedUserName=testuser1 with my query, I
still only see the 65 docs from the other space.
7. If I temporarily turn off the MCF SearchComponent in Solr, I can
see the docs from the "locked down" space.

I set the various token fields to stored="true" so I can see what is
getting stored, and here's what I see for one sample document (one
that isn't being returned with the SearchComponent enabled, but which
should be).

"allow_token_document":["Alfresco:testuser1", "Alfresco:testuser2",
"Alfresco:testuser3", "Alfresco:testuser4"],

Note that at ingestion time, tokens were created of the form Alfresco:username for the specific
individual users which were granted access to the "secure" folder.

However, if I make a direct request to the MCF UserACL's endpoint for, say, testuser1, like

I get back:


which explains why I can see the documents from the public folder, because they all have an
allow_token_document for Alfresco:GROUP_EVERYONE.  But note that what I don't get back here
is the token for the specific user testuser1, which would match what was stored during ingestion.
