Default Configuration

When you create a resource server, {project_name} creates a default configuration for your newly created resource server.

The default configuration consists of:

  • A default protected resource representing all resources in your application.

  • A policy that always grants access to the resources protected by this policy.

  • A permission that governs access to all resources based on the default policy.

The default protected resource is referred to as the default resource and you can view it if you navigate to the Resources tab.

Default Resource

Default Resource

This resource defines a Type, namely urn:my-resource-server:resources:default and a URI /*. Here, the URI field defines a wildcard pattern that indicates to {project_name} that this resource represents all the paths in your application. In other words, when enabling policy enforcement for your application, all the permissions associated with the resource will be examined before granting access.

The Type mentioned previously defines a value that can be used to create typed resource permissions that must be applied to the default resource or any other resource you create using the same type.

The default policy is referred to as the only from realm policy and you can view it if you navigate to the Policies tab.

Default Policy

Default Policy

This policy is a JavaScript-based policy defining a condition that always grants access to the resources protected by this policy. If you click this policy you can see that it defines a rule as follows:

// by default, grants any permission associated with this policy

Lastly, the default permission is referred to as the default permission and you can view it if you navigate to the Permissions tab.

Default Permission

Default Permission

This permission is a resource-based permission, defining a set of one or more policies that are applied to all resources with a given type.

Changing the Default Configuration

You can change the default configuration by removing the default resource, policy, or permission definitions and creating your own.

The default resource is created with an URI that maps to any resource or path in your application using a /* pattern. Before creating your own resources, permissions and policies, make sure the default configuration doesn’t conflict with your own settings.

The default configuration defines a resource that maps to all paths in your application. If you are about to write permissions to your own resources, be sure to remove the Default Resource or change its URIS fields to a more specific paths in your application. Otherwise, the policy associated with the default resource (which by default always grants access) will allow {project_name} to grant access to any protected resource.
