Using Jackrabbit UserManager APIs to retrieve group permissions

You can develop an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) OSGi bundle that uses the Jackrabbit UserManager APIs to retrive group privileges for a specific node. This API provides access to both AEM users and groups and is located in the org.apache.jackrabbit.api.security.user Java package. For more information, see Interface UserManager.

For example, consider a group named geometrixx-facebook that has these permissions to a node located here:

/content/geometrixx-outdoors/en/TestPage

The following illustration shows the privileges for the geometrixx-facebook group.


Using an OSGi bundle that contains the Jackrabbit UserManager API, you can dynamically retrieve group privileges. In this development article, group privileges for a page are written to the AEM log file.

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: jcr:read

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: jcr:modifyAccessControl

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: crx:replicate

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: jcr:versionManagement

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: jcr:lockManagement

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: rep:write

**** Here are the permissions: group: geometrixx-facebook privilege: jcr:readAccessControl
