      • isGranted

        public boolean isGranted​(Acl acl,
                                 java.util.List<Permission> permission,
                                 java.util.List<Sid> sids,

                          throws NotFoundException
        Determines authorization. The order of the permission and sid arguments is extremely important! The method will iterate through each of the permissions in the order specified. For each iteration, all of the sids will be considered, again in the order they are presented. A search will then be performed for the first AccessControlEntry object that directly matches that permission:sid combination. When the first full match is found (ie an ACE that has the SID currently being searched for and the exact permission bit mask being search for), the grant or deny flag for that ACE will prevail. If the ACE specifies to grant access, the method will return true. If the ACE specifies to deny access, the loop will stop and the next permission iteration will be performed. If each permission indicates to deny access, the first deny ACE found will be considered the reason for the failure (as it was the first match found, and is therefore the one most logically requiring changes - although not always). If absolutely no matching ACE was found at all for any permission, the parent ACL will be tried (provided that there is a parent and Acl.isEntriesInheriting() is true. The parent ACL will also scan its parent and so on. If ultimately no matching ACE is found, a NotFoundException will be thrown and the caller will need to decide how to handle the permission check. Similarly, if any of the SID arguments presented to the method were not loaded by the ACL, UnloadedSidException will be thrown.
        Specified by:
        isGranted in interface PermissionGrantingStrategy
        permission - the exact permissions to scan for (order is important)
        sids - the exact SIDs to scan for (order is important)
        administrativeMode - if true denotes the query is for administrative purposes and no auditing will be undertaken
        true if one of the permissions has been granted, false if one of the permissions has been specifically revoked
        NotFoundException - if an exact ACE for one of the permission bit masks and SID combination could not be found
      • isGranted

        protected boolean isGranted​(AccessControlEntry ace,
                                    Permission p)
        Compares an ACE Permission to the given Permission. By default, we compare the Permission masks for exact match. Subclasses of this strategy can override this behavior and implement more sophisticated comparisons, e.g. a bitwise comparison for ACEs that grant access.
         if (ace.isGranting() && p.getMask() != 0) {
            return (ace.getPermission().getMask() & p.getMask()) != 0;
         } else {
            return ace.getPermission().getMask() == p.getMask();
        ace - the ACE from the Acl holding the mask.
        p - the Permission we are checking against.
        true, if the respective masks are considered to be equal.
