Subject [jira] [Commented] (SHIRO-492) Subject.getRoles() functionality
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:42:34 GMT


Terefang Verigorn commented on SHIRO-492:

hello les,

my requirements are a little bit different.

i would like to resolve roles from an external backend based on the roles presented from the
authenticating realm with code like this:

	public AuthorizationInfo 
	doGetAuthorizationInfo(PrincipalCollection pc) 
		AuthorizationInfo aI = authenticator.doGetAuthorizationInfo(pc);
		String userName = this.getAvailablePrincipal(pc).toString();
		SimpleAuthorizationInfo sAI = new SimpleAuthorizationInfo(new HashSet());

		Collection<String> groups = aI.getRoles();
			for(String group : groupProvider.resolveGroups(userName, groups))
		List<String> roles = new Vector();
			for(String role : roleProvider.resolveRoles(userName, groups))
			for(Permission permission : permissionProvider.resolvePermissions(userName, roles))
		return sAI;

However, while the realms have methods for getting all authorizations (protected), these are
not exposed in normal use to allow asking for all Roles. This should be exposed by adding
a call to Subject to getRoles, to complement it's existing hasRoles calls. This may require
making some of the calls around authorizations, like getAuthorizationInfo in AuthorizingRealm,
