#306 ✓resolved

Document if jobs can be hidden but be executed from other

Reported by Alex-SF | May 26th, 2011 @ 04:57 PM | in Rundeck 1.2.1

Test disallowing workflow_read but allowing workflow_run in order to see if a hidden subjob can still be executed from another (workflow) job.

    The underlying goal is to reduce the clutter in the job list. For example, there may be a handful of top level processes that should be visible. These top level jobs may be constructed from lower level "helper jobs" that should not be visible since they should normally be run by themselves.

    Adding job definition describing trivial multi-job workflow structure in a group named "#306".

    The following aclpolicy hides the jobs that are not meant to be visible in the gui.

      <policy description="User group that has limited access.">
        <context project="*">
          <command group="#306" job="Restart" actions="workflow_run,workflow_read"/>
          <command group="#306" job="stop" actions="workflow_run"/>
          <command group="#306" job="stop" actions="workflow_run"/>
          <group name="user"/>

    any job can be run as a subjob (auth is not checked)

    also, authorization checks for grails actions (pages) use the mapped roles, not the aclpolicy. so, e.g. you can still view the /job/show/id page for any of those jobs where there is no workflow_read authorization. Likewise, mapped roles must assign workflow_update to one of the user's roles to be able to edit a job, even if aclpolicy allows * actions.

    another point:

    Job listings are filtered by aclpolicy. So the main Jobs page will not show unauthorized jobs. Also, job reference selection in the job edit page will not show unauthorized jobs.
