  • ACL mask usage question

    What is the intended usage of ADMINISTRATION compared to READ, WRITE, CREATE, and DELETE. Is it a coarser grained access schema? Or are there other use cases? Just curious how people are using it.

    Thanks.

    The ACL permissions are not prescriptive, they can mean whatever you want them to mean, or you can write your own AbstractBasicAclEntry subclass that provides application-specific permissions.

    Administration usually means "all permissions plus the ability to modify ACLs for this object". So a holder of administration can grant new privileges, whereas a user with write permissions can only write to the object (not its ACLs).
