Subject [jira] [Created] (OAK-2947) Allow configured system user(s) to impersonate regular users
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 08:35:17 GMT
angela created OAK-2947:

             Summary: Allow configured system user(s) to impersonate regular users
                 Key: OAK-2947
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-2947
             Project: Jackrabbit Oak
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: angela
            Assignee: angela

Based on some private discussion on how to implement a feature that allows a given subject
to continue working on 'his' modifications after changes being persisted, we ([~djaeggi],
[~chaotic] and [~anchela]) thought that it would be beneficial to have a configuration option
in Oak that allows certain system users to impersonate regular users irrespective on the {{rep:impersonators}}
properties present with those users.

[~fmeschbe] additionally proposed to allow for a configuration that not only states the name(s)
of the service users but also limits the sudo-rights to members of a certain group: for example
the impersonation ability of a potential system user "impersonate-content-authors" could be
limited to impersonate members of the "content-authors" group.
