Subject [jira] [Commented] (SHIRO-459) Support role-based authorization depending on HTTP request method
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2013 14:57:51 GMT


Daniel Bimschas commented on SHIRO-459:

Quite obviously the implementation should have some documentation (e.g., on how to use it).
I would be happy to add it if you think this implementation is fine.

Also I wonder if it is possible or sensible to not always parse the authorization settings
for every request. Does this make sense? Or is Shiro reading the configuration every time
a request is authorized (thereby allowing changing authorization settings at runtime)? Or
are servlet filters instantiated for every request whatsoever?

> Dear Shiro gods!
> I'm struggling to figure out how I can do role-based authorization depending on what
HTTP method a request is using. I've posted this question on StackOverflow as it seems nobody
has been asking it before (at least I couldn't find it with my search terms). I would be incredibly
happy if you could take a look!

> =============================
> Digging into the Shiro source codes I found that this feature is in fact not available
in Shiro. I've now implemented my own custom filter (extending RolesAuthorizationFilter) that
allows you to do exactly what I wanted. Configuration for the filter follows the following
> [main]
>  myFilter=my.package.HttpMethodRolesAuthorizationFilter
> [urls]
> So, in this example
> - a user must be authenticated to execute any operation
> - a user with both roles SERVICE_PROVIDER and EXPERIMENTER can send a PUT request,
> - a user with role EXPERIMENTER can send POST requests, and
> - a user with role ADMINISTRATOR can DELETE things
> I would be more than happy to contribute this little bit of code to the project in case
you're interested!
