We use the Acegi Security framework for authentication and authorization. Acegi can be configured to authenticate against a variety of authentication sources, such as LDAP. We also have a default authentication source that uses an internal database.


You can configure the object level security in JI to allow users access only to the reports and other resources that are relevant for their roles, or down to the individual user level. You can set the security for folders or individual reports, say.


The various browser UIs in the system call the repository API:






The lists of results are filtered to show only what objects the user has access to. The report browser wporks this way.

In the new release, there is an example in RepositoryAction (war-jar).



List pathFolders = getPathFolders(folderURI);


List folders = repository.getSubFolders(null, folderURI);


FilterCriteria reportUnitCriteria = FilterCriteria.createFilter(ReportUnit.class);



List reportUnits = repository.loadResourcesList(reportUnitCriteria);



The list of reports that are available for the logged in user will be in the reportUnits variable.

There is not a way to have no interaction with the mysql database if you use the installer. The installer will attempt to connect to a database in order to create and populate the jasperserver database. However, this is the only database affected.


Alternatively, you can use the jasperintelligence-1.0.1-bin.zip which is a "stand-alone" war archive. You can use this in tomcat or jboss and then all of the database setup is done "by hand" using the instructions found in the doc jasperintelligence-WarFile-install-guide.pdf.
