This guide applies to the community and commercial editions of JasperReports Server6.1, the most recent version at publication time. If you're running an earlier version of JasperReports Server, refer to the corresponding version of the Authentication Cookbook.
In version 5.1, we reconfigured JasperReports Server to simplify creation and configuration of external authentication. In version 6.0.1, we added wrapper classes for the underlying Spring Security classes. If you're updating from an earlier version of JasperReports Server, you need to modify your configuration files to work with the current version.
