Subject [jira] Created: (SSHD-109) Pass server session to FileSystemFactory.createFileSystemView
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 09:52:37 GMT
Pass server session to FileSystemFactory.createFileSystemView

                 Key: SSHD-109
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SSHD-109
             Project: MINA SSHD
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.5.0
            Reporter: Richard Evans
            Priority: Minor

In the integration of sshd with our application we have a PasswordAuthenticator implementation
which authenticates against our internal user database.  From this we derive an internal user
object which is needed for further permissions checking, etc in the file system view.  However
the createFileSystemView call takes a user name only.  If the ServerSession was passed to
createFileSystemView also, the user object could be stored in the session and retrieved when
the file system view is created. In the current system I have to store the user object in
a ThreadLocal and get it from there in createFileSystemView.

This would require a custom session factory and session object - if the session had some internal
storage for private attributes, etc (rather like an HttpSession) this would not be necessary.
