Channel Access Control List (nACL)
When connected to a Universal Messaging realm server ,with a reference to an nRealmNode object (see nRealmNode
) it is possible to get a reference to an nLeafNode (see nLeafNode (Channels and Queues)
) that corresponds to a channel. This can then be used to get access the node's nACL . This object contains a list of nChannelACLEntry objects that represent a subject and a set permissions for various operations on a channel. There is a separate nChannelACLEntry object for each subject that has been permissioned on the nLeafNode.
You can also, add, delete and modify ACL entry objects.
In order to obtain a reference to the correct channel ACL object for a channel called "/products/prices", simply call the following method from a realm node:
Java, C#, C++:
nLeafNode chan = realm.findNode("/products/prices");
nACL acl = chan.getACLs();
nLeafNode* chan = realm->findNode("/products/prices");
nACL* acl = chan->getACLs();
Once you have the ACL object, you can then add, remove or modify acl entries:
To find a specific ACL entry from the channel ACL, the ACL object can be searched using the subject.
For example, to change the default permissions for the *@* subject (i.e. the default permission for the channel), the following code can be used:
nChannelACLEntry entry = acl.find("Everyone");
nChannelACLEntry* entry = acl->find("Everyone");
which would set the full privileges flag to false for the default subject.
