Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-3777) Multiplexing support in default PermissionStore implementation
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2016 13:27:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-3777?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15376902#comment-15376902

angela commented on OAK-3777:

we just had a discussion about the multiplexing authorization models in a meeting. it turned
out that I was mistaken about the fact that the physical location of the permission store
entries associated with a secondary (private) store which according to the explanation of
[~chetanm] is _not_ being written back to the shared (global) nodestore. instead the additional
private store keeps it's own 'permission store' and it's only upon read and evaluation that
a multiplexing aware permission-entry-reader needs to be aware of the multiplexing.

so, other authorization models (such as for example {{oak-authorization-cug}} can make a conscious
decision on whether to support multiplexed setups by using and following the {{MountProvider}}
API contract.

with that information at hand my concerns have been addressed and we decided on the following
next steps:
- [~chetanm] will write the documentation on how to write multiplexing aware authorization
- I will then use that docu to adjust {{oak-authorization-cug}}, which will allow us the verify
that the concept works for others
