Interface SecurityContextRepository

    • Method Detail

      • loadContext

        SecurityContext loadContext​(HttpRequestResponseHolder requestResponseHolder)
        Obtains the security context for the supplied request. For an unauthenticated user, an empty context implementation should be returned. This method should not return null.

        The use of the HttpRequestResponseHolder parameter allows implementations to return wrapped versions of the request or response (or both), allowing them to access implementation-specific state for the request. The values obtained from the holder will be passed on to the filter chain and also to the saveContext method when it is finally called. Implementations may wish to return a subclass of SaveContextOnUpdateOrErrorResponseWrapper as the response object, which guarantees that the context is persisted when an error or redirect occurs.

        requestResponseHolder - holder for the current request and response for which the context should be loaded.
        The security context which should be used for the current request, never null.
