Use custom tables and views for authentication

If you use the standard DBSecurityManager, DBWorkScreenAccess or RoleBasedDBWorkScreenAccess you have to use the following table names:

AUTOLOGIN
USERS

and following view names:

V_ACCESSRULES
V_ROLESCREENS
V_USERROLES
V_USERSCREENS

If you want to change the names without changing the source code, it's very easy to map the expected names to your own names. It's also possible to define synonyms in your database, if supported.

Simply add following to your config.xml:

<application>
  …
 
  <databaseobjects>
    <USERS>APP_USERS</USERS>
    <AUTOLOGIN>APP_AUTOLOGIN</AUTOLOGIN></databaseobjects>
 
</application>

The mapping syntax is:

<origtablename>newtablename</origtablename>

It's also possible to change the column names of standard tables and views. Simply add following to your config.xml:

<databaseobjects>
  <USERS_CHANGE_PASSWORD>PWD_CHANGE_FLAG</USERS_CHANGE_PASSWORD>
</databaseobjects>

The syntax for column mapping is:

<origtablename_origcolumnname>newcolumnname</origtablename_origcolumnname>

A hidden feature is the support for changing the YES value. The standard value for YES is Y. If you want another value e.g. 1, simply add following to your config.xml:

<databaseobjects>
  <yes_value>1</yes_value>
</databaseobjects>

The value will be used in DBWorkScreenAccess and DBSecurityManager and following tables:

USERS
WORKSCREENS
