Subject [jira] [Created] (SHIRO-371) SimpleAccountRealm should implement RolePermissionResolver
Date Thu, 14 Jun 2012 12:27:42 GMT
Jared Bunting created SHIRO-371:

             Summary: SimpleAccountRealm should implement RolePermissionResolver
                 Key: SHIRO-371
             Project: Shiro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Authorization (access control) , Configuration, Realms 
            Reporter: Jared Bunting
            Assignee: Jared Bunting
            Priority: Minor

It seems to be a valid use case to have an external user management system (ldap, active directory,
etc) manage users and the roles that they are in.  However, since permissions are often application-dependent,
it is not uncommon to map roles to permissions at the application level.  The shiro.ini file
seems a perfect place to do this, but it is non-trivial to allow a different realm (again,
ldap or active directory) to use the role->permission mappings place in the ini file. 
If the SimpleAccountRealm implemented RolePermissionResolver, then it could be done as simply

myRealm = com.example.MyCustomRealm
myRealm.rolePermissionResolver = $iniRealm
