Dev Request for User Management API

Hi there,

we have a customer (considering that this request covers a Law that was passed last year) who has to add an attribute in the UME DB (our case!) in order to check the lastsuccessfulLogonDate and if older then 3 months the user has to be dactivated or locked. So far we were able to rewrite the DefaultLoginModule and implementing a control which stops the login process for expired users.

Now the question is since this is a law which will be enacted by june 30th this customer is worried about future compliance of the Portal, upgrades etc.. The modification we would like to make is to render an attribute even in the user management settings that allows to change the value of the inactivity period without changing the class and recompiling it.

Any hint on how to proceed on this is much appreciated.

    Try moving the change out of the default login module and into a new JAAS login module (which is a requisite for the users) . This way, when a new version comes the overwriting of the default login module will not influence the portal (only make sure the autschemes.xml isn't changed)


    for a JAAS tutorial and example.
