  • Changing user role mapping post login?

    A spring security newbie question...

    I am designing a new web app that plans to use Spring Security for log-in and user to functional role mapping.

    The design of this app includes a 'workspace' concept, where a user is able to switch focus between different workspaces as part of the web app GUI. The challenge is that a user's role could vary between different workspaces. For example, a user could be have an administrator role for 'workspace A' and have a simple 'user' role in 'workspace B'.

    With Spring Security is it possible to change a user's role settings post log-in? If so, how?

    The other possibility is to have role checking functionality that can accept two input parameters - i.e. workspace and role name - rather than just role name.

    Thought?

      I think you should try using spring security ACL and manage ACLs for your workspace objects. The reference docs as well as the ACL sample explains the same in detail
