6.10.2. Configure Application Resource Constraints

Each Application Resource Constraint defines a set of resources, attributes and operations that are usually associated with the deployment of applications and services. When an application resource constraint is enabled management users of the Deployer role are granted access to the resources that it applies to.

Application constraint configuration is in the Management Model at /core-service=management/access=authorization/constraint=application-classification/.

Within the management model each Application Resource Constraint is identified as a classification. The classifications are then grouped into types. There are 14 included classifications that are arranged into 8 types. Each classification has an applies-to element which is a list of resource path patterns to which the classifications configuration applies.

By default the only Application Resource classification that is enabled is core. Core includes deployments, deployment overlays, and the deployment operations.

To enable an Application Resource, use the write-attribute operation to set the configured-application attribute of the classification to true. To disable an Application Resource, set this attribute to false. By default these attributes are not set and the value of default-application attribute is used. The default value cannot be changed.

Example 6.6. Enabling the logger-profile application resource classification

[domain@localhost:9999 /] cd /core-service=management/access=authorization/constraint=application-classification/type=logging/classification=logging-profile
[domain@localhost:9999 classification=logging-profile] :write-attribute(name=configured-application, value=true)
    "outcome" => "success",
    "result" => undefined,
    "server-groups" => {"main-server-group" => {"host" => {"master" => {
        "server-one" => {"response" => {"outcome" => "success"}},
        "server-two" => {"response" => {"outcome" => "success"}}
[domain@localhost:9999 classification=logging-profile] :read-resource 
    "outcome" => "success",
    "result" => {
        "configured-application" => true,
        "default-application" => false,
        "applies-to" => {"/profile=*/subsystem=logging/logging-profile=*" => undefined}
[domain@localhost:9999 classification=logging-profile]


Application Resource Constraints apply to all resources that match its configuration. For example, It is not possible to grant a Deployer user access to one datasource resource but not another. If this level of separation is required then it is recommended to configure the resources in different server groups and create different scoped Deployer roles for each group.
