I think it is more reasonable to protect a resource like this:



Because the relationship between resources and roles may change in the future,
even more,the role name may change.

Totally wrong, eh?

First off, if you want to treat the attributes used in the security metadata as logical roles/permisssions, then there is nothing to stop you doing so. You can just implement an appropriate mapping in your AuthenticationProvider or UserDetailsService. This is a common requirement.

Secondly, please check the changelog before creating new issues. The functionality you are talking about was implemented in RC1 for SEC-525.
