Configuring Client Authorization

Configuring Client Authorization

You can configure authorization on a per-client basis for various cache operations such as creates, gets, puts, query invalidations, interest registration, and region destroys. On the server side, the securityclient-accessor system property in the server’s gemfire.properties file specifies the authorization callback.

For example:

security-client-accessor=templates.security.XmlAuthorization.create

In the preceding system property setting, XmlAuthorization is the callback class that implements the AccessControl interface. The XmlAuthorization sample implementation provided with GemFire expects an XML file that defines authorization privileges for the clients. For details of this sample implementation and the AccessControl interface, see the Authorization Example section in the Security chapter for the GemFire User's Guide.
