Interface IAuthorizationStrategy

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractPageAuthorizationStrategy, AbstractRoleAuthorizationStrategy, ActionAuthorizationStrategy, AnnotationsRoleAuthorizationStrategy, CompoundAuthorizationStrategy, IAuthorizationStrategy.AllowAllAuthorizationStrategy, MetaDataRoleAuthorizationStrategy, RoleAuthorizationStrategy, SimplePageAuthorizationStrategy

public interface IAuthorizationStrategy
Authorization strategies specify aspect-like constraints on significant actions taken by the framework in a given application. These constraints are guaranteed by the framework to be applied consistently throughout. Violations will result in a security action directed by the strategy, such as the throwing of an AuthorizationException or the filtering out of security-sensitive information.

    • isInstantiationAuthorized

      <T extends IRequestableComponent> boolean isInstantiationAuthorized(Class<T> componentClass)
      Checks whether an instance of the given component class may be created. If this method returns false, the IUnauthorizedComponentInstantiationListener that is configured in the security settings will be called. The default implementation of that listener throws a UnauthorizedInstantiationException.

      If you wish to implement a strategy that authenticates users which cannot access a given Page (or other Component), you can simply throw a RestartResponseAtInterceptPageException in your implementation of this method.

      Type Parameters:
      T -
      componentClass - The component class to check
      Whether the given component may be created
    • isActionAuthorized

      boolean isActionAuthorized(Component component, Action action)
      Gets whether the given action is permitted. If it is, this method should return true. If it isn't, this method should either return false or - in case of a serious breach - throw a security exception. Returning is generally preferable over throwing an exception as that doesn't break the normal flow.
      component - The component to be acted upon
      action - The action to authorize on the component
      Whether the given action may be taken on the given component
      AuthorizationException - Can be thrown by implementation if action is unauthorized

    • isResourceAuthorized

      boolean isResourceAuthorized(IResource resource, PageParameters parameters)
      Checks whether a request with some parameters is allowed to a resource.
      resource - The resource that should be processed
      parameters - The request parameters
      true if the request to this resource is allowed.
