I am running portlets in the JBoss Portal that requires a authenticated user. But when this portlets invoke javax.portlet.PortletRequest.getRemoteUser() it always returns null. This occurs because when my consumer invoke getServiceDescription the Jboss Portal always returns that registration is not required (
<requiresRegistration>FALSE</requiresRegistration>). Is there a way to change this? JBoss Portal supports registration?
JBoss Portal 2.4 does not currently support the (optional) Registration interface on the producer side. This is scheduled for 2.6.
