Setting Service Permissions with KM API

I am having a problem service permissions in KM.

This is the last big hurdle in finishing my application:

Portal Info

Zelus Repository Info:

Services running
svc_acl <---

Current Failing code:

In this document:

It seems that I just need to replace the repository's <b>IAclSecurityManager</b> from my working code for setting regular ACL permissions

with the <b>IAclService</b>. This then can get the AclManager for the service permissions.

Here is my code (with exception handling removed) permUser = null; nUser = null;
		IAclService service = null; sacl = null;
		IAclPermission saclPermission = null;
		IResourceAclEntry sEntry = null;
		RID rid = RID.getRID("/Zelus/test1");
		//Get permissioned user (this works)
		nUser = UMFactory.getUserFactory().getUserByLogonID("chain");
		permUser = WPUMFactory.getUserFactory().getEP5User(nUser);
		//get acl manager and acl (this works) 
		sfolder = (ICollection) ResourceFactory.getInstance().getResource(rid, context);
                saclManager = service.getAclManager();

<b>The following fails: no IResourceACL object is returned</b>

                 //get Service ACL from manager
                 sacl = saclManager.getAcl(sfolder); 

(<b>RuntimeException</b>: The ACL is <i>always null</i>...even if it does exist)

               //if Service ACL does not exist, create it
                if (sacl == null) {
                                    sacl = saclManager.createAcl(sfolder);
                //get permission to apply                
                 saclPermission = saclManager.getPermission(IAclPermission.ACL_PERMISSION_SUBSCRIPTION_ACTIVE); 

(<b>Creating the entry throws a null pointer Exception (sacl is null)</b>)

                  //create ACL Entry 
                 sEntry = saclManager.createAclEntry((IUMPrincipal) permUser, false, saclPermission, 0);

        <property name="ComponentType" value="AbstractPortalComponent"/>

There are no code snippets to be found on sdn....

Points happily awarded to anyone that can help 😊

    Hi Cory,

    > saclManager = service.getAclManager();

    How did you retrieve <i>service</i>? (This part is missing in your code extract.) The same for <i>context</i>?!

    Best regards
