    How to configure a default unauthenticated identity?

    Patrick Garner Newbie

      I am upgrading AS7 to Wildfly.  The web application began to throw EJBAccessExceptions on all unchecked methods to unauthenticated users.  I temporarily added @PermitAll, which made the EJBAccessExceptions go away.

       

      Next step in troubleshooting was to remove the @PermitAlls and add the following to my login module configuration in standalone.xml:

       

      <module-option name="unauthenticatedIdentity" value="guest"/>
      
      

      However, this configuration change had no effect and the EJBAccessException on unchecked method was thrown.

       

      Next, I set a breakpoint where the exception was thrown and I invoked

       

      ctx.getCallerPrincipal()
      
      

      which returned a Principal whose name was "anonymous."  It seemed to me that the name should be "guest," not "anonymous."  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

       

      Next, I created an obvious error in standalone.xml and restarted Wildfly.  Wildfly would not restart due to the error I introduced.  Therefore, I knew that I added the module-option to the correct configuration file.

       

      Next, I added the following to the EJB class:

       

      @RolesAllowed("guest")
      
      

      This did not prevent EJBAccessException.

       

      What am I doing wrong?  What do I need to change?
