    Security-constraint being ignored

    Robert Liotta Newbie

      Good Evening.

      environment:
      JBoss Portal Version 2.4SP1 downloaded
      JBoss AS Version 4.0.4GA
      Database is Postgres 8.0.4
      I am running on Windows

      Describe the problem:

      I am trying to add page level security to a page. It I configure it as unchecked and look in the management portal, it shows as unchecked. If I set a role, the whole constraint is ignored.

      If I go in into the management portlet and configure the constraints, it works perfectly. I am however trying to configure a deployment and want to configure it with the WAR.

      Here is my *-object.xml

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>



      <instance-id>KNAvayaInstance</instance-id>
      <portlet-ref>AvayaPortlet</portlet-ref>




      <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
      <parent-ref>default</parent-ref>

      <page-name>AvayaPortletPage</page-name>


      <window-name>AvayaTestWindow</window-name>
      <instance-ref>KNAvayaInstance</instance-ref>
      center
      0

      <security-constraint>
      <policy-permission>
      avaya
      <action-name>view</action-name>
      </policy-permission>
      </security-constraint>




      I have confirmed that the role exists in the database. I have tried view and viewrecursive with the same result. I am guessing I missed something rudimentary. There are no constraints on the instance as you can see.

      This is the portlet snippet from the portlet.xml


      <portlet-name>AvayaPortlet</portlet-name>
      Portlet to test Avaya
      <portlet-class>org.pentaho.ui.portlet.NavigationPortlet</portlet-class>

      <mime-type>text/html</mime-type>
      <portlet-mode>VIEW</portlet-mode>

      <portlet-info>
      %AvayaReports
      </portlet-info>
      <portlet-preferences>

      solution
      kn


      path
      customers/avaya


      xsl
      portal-files.xsl


      secure
      true

      </portlet-preferences>



      Can anyone shed some light on this.



      Thanks.
