trying to call ProxyFactory methods inside CLI alert scripts throws AccessControlExceptions
Last modified: 2013-09-03 11:14:52 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #786106 +++
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create CLI script that uses ProxyFactory to obtain some resource (ProxyFactory.getResource(10001)), create alert, attach the script as one of its notifications.
2. Let the alert fire
In the alert history, review the cli notification results - it shows an access control exception
No access control exception should have been thrown

[BZ 786106] Wrap calls to obtain managers in privileged blocks so that 3rd
callers can safely obtain them.
The StandardBindings put all the managers into the script context before
the script engine is initialized with the security measures which makes
the managers available inside the scripts. Java code that gets injected as
other params into the scripts (like the "ProxyFactory" (of class
ResourceClientFactory) would suffer from access control exceptions when
it tried to obtain some manager while being called from the script because
it would try to call the methods from the LocalClient to obtain the remote
interfaces directly, without a wrapping in a privileged block). Obtaining
the remote interfaces is a safe operation wrt the scripts and so can be
wrapped in privileged block so that any caller of the LocalClient can
have access to the regardless of the access control restrictions in place.

Making this BZ block the correct tracker.
QE ... this should be verifiable in RC5
per triage 2/13/2012 (asantos, crouch, foley, loleary)
Moving to ON_QA for testing with JON 3.0.1.GA RC5 or better:
verified JON 3.01 RC5 as follows:
1) created a drift definition
2) created an alert based on drift detection. this alert's notification is a CLI script as defined above, eg ProxyFactory.getResource(10001)
3) created drift, which triggered the alert
4) reviewed alert history to make sure the alert fired
5) reviewed server log to make sure access control exception was not fired.
The access control exception would have appeared as the part of the output of the notification. Go to the details of the alert in the history page and review its notifications tab.
The exception might also bubble up to the server log, but I am currently not looking at the code and don't remember for sure from top of my head.
performed additional verification per comment #6.
Bulk closing of old issues in VERIFIED state.
