picketlink-authorization-acl: PicketLink IDM Authorization Example using ACLs

Author: Shane Bryzak, Pedro Igor
Level: Intermediate
Technologies: CDI, PicketLink
Summary: Basic example that demonstrates IDM-based authorization using the Permissions API to implement ACL-based resource restrictions
Target Product: EAP
Source: https://github.com/jboss-developer/jboss-picketlink-quickstarts/

What is it?

This example demonstrates the use of CDI 1.0, and PicketLink IDM JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 or WildFly 8.

It provides a simple example about how to support fine-grained authorization using PicketLink Permission API. In this application you are able to create articles using two different users:

Username: john / Password: demo
Username: mary / Password: demo

Both users can create articles, but only the owner can edit or delete articles.

It demonstrates how to use the Identity bean, PermissionManager and the RequiresPermission annotation to protect resources.

System requirements

All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or better, Maven 3.0 or better.

The application this project produces is designed to be run on JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 or JBoss WildFly 8.

Configure Maven

If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.

Start JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 or WildFly 8 with the Web Profile

  1. Open a command line and navigate to the root of the JBoss server directory.

  2. The following shows the command line to start the server with the web profile:

     For Linux:   JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone.sh
     For Windows: JBOSS_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
    

Build and Deploy the Quickstart

NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss Server as described above.

  2. Open a command line and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.

  3. Type this command to build and deploy the archive:

     For EAP 6:     mvn clean package jboss-as:deploy
     For WildFly:   mvn -Pwildfly clean package wildfly:deploy
    
  4. This will deploy target/jboss-as-picketlink-authorization-acl.war to the running instance of the server.

Access the application

The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/picketlink-authorization-acl.

Undeploy the Archive

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss Server as described above.

  2. Open a command line and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.

  3. When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:

     For EAP 6:     mvn jboss-as:undeploy
     For WildFly:   mvn -Pwildfly wildfly:undeploy
    

Run the Quickstart in JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse

You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts

Debug the Application

If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.

    mvn dependency:sources
    mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
