RoleLoginModule
RoleLoginModule provides authorization information using the roles/permissions storage. The module is implemented according to the JAAS standards. The current user that is already successfully authenticated by other login modules from the chain, is searched in the storage by the fully qualified name. Also, if any of the previous login modules in the chain provides group membership of the user, this login module looks in the storage for the groups and concatenates permissions assigned to the group to the user's permissions. The login module updates already existing SagUserPrincipal with the permissions assigned to the current user (direclty assigned or coming from the groups on which is member). Additionally, SagRolePrincipal is created for each role on which the user is member and all of those SagPrincipal objects are attached to the Subject.
Note:
Permissions are added as properties of SagUserPrincipal with key name "permissions."
This module recognizes the configuration options described in the following table.
