    Resolution: Duplicate

> C++ Broker Acl overpopulates decision data tables
> -------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: QPID-4560
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-4560
>             Project: Qpid
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: C++ Broker
>    Affects Versions: 0.21
>         Environment: All C++ brokers
>            Reporter: Chuck Rolke
>            Assignee: Chuck Rolke
>            Priority: Minor
> The primary run-time decision structure for Acl processing contains rule lists indexed
by [object][action]. There are five objects and nine actions resulting in 45 rule list roots.
In actual practice, however, the broker has code only to call 14 of these. 
> For instance, the broker will never call for authorisation of [link][bind] or [method][purge].
> Normal Acl writers would not specify rules to fill these rule list roots but they are
populated when rules using the "all" keyword are processed.
> There is already validation map code that identifies active intersections in the rule
list but that code is unused. A relatively easy modification to the Acl module would be to
consult the validation map before loading decision data and only proceed to install rules
that may actually be called by the broker.
> On small scale Acl rule sets this is not an issue or at least no one has complained about
it yet. Anticipating larger installations this proposed change would help.
