Interface AuthenticationInfoPostProcessor

  • @ConsumerType
    public interface AuthenticationInfoPostProcessor
    Service interface which allows bundles to modify the AuthenticationInfo object right after one AuthenticationHandler has returned an {AuthenticationInfo from the AuthenticationHandler.extractCredentials(HttpServletRequest, HttpServletResponse) method or an anonymous AuthenticationInfo has been created. This service is called before the ResourceResolver is created and any login into the resource providers (such as a JCR repository or other data store) happens. However, the AuthenticationHandler might actually do such a login and pass on the information to the resource provider through the AuthenticationInfo. This service interface is useful to access and modify the {AuthenticationInfo before it is passed to the ResourceResolverFactory to create a ResourceResolver.
