pseudo principals and TWS?

Hi all,

just experienced a strange behaviour:

I have set an ACL to a resource with an ACE for a pseudo principal, e. g. DAV:unauthenticated. The ACL method went through all right, but examining the ACL for the resource afterwards didn’t show the pseudo principal “DAV:unauthenticated”, but a principal “<D:href>/taminowebdavserver/administration/security/users/</D:href>”. Together with that the given privileges seem to apply to all principals for that resource.

May it be possible, that those pseudo principals “DAV:all”, “DAV:authenticated”, “DAV:unauthenticated”, “DAV:self”, and “DAV:property” don’t work on TWS in its current state of development?

If so I’d have to trim down our client to disable these “features” …?

Hi Guy,

the pseudo principals are currently mapped to /taminowebdavserver/administration/security/users/ (/taminowebdavserver/administration/security/userdb for LDAP groups) in the ACEs, just for the principal-match Report ‘self’ works as described in webdav-acl draft 07.
