Description Mike McCune 2004-08-11 18:53:12 UTC
Bookmark a page specific to a User (for example:
http://localhost:8080/Addresses.do?uid=2266493) and let your session

Then hit the URL again and you get:

[ServletException in:/WEB-INF/pages/addresses.jsp]
IllegalInvocationException calling aclOrgEntitlement
("org_entitlement(rhn_monitor)"): null'

Comment 1 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2004-08-19 22:26:12 UTC
The culprit is in the NavMenuTag.java file.  If the request attribute
"session" is null, we set the user to null.  Then we proceed to call
the AclGuard with a null user.  Bad idea.

Reassigning to jesusr

Comment 3 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2004-08-20 02:49:47 UTC
Fixed in Access.java.  Rather than fix the tag, I fixed the acl.  It
should return false if it can't access the user.
