Hiding Tutorials From Home Page On Role Based Users In Jasper Server

Posted on by By Prashanth, in Jaspersoft | 0

Used Jasper Report Server Version : 6.4.2

Process :

  1. Goto path \webapps\jasperserver-pro\WEB-INF
  2. Open the applicationContext-rest-services.xml file.

Here, we can modify home-page content as per our requirement. For example, I’ll show you how to hide tutorials from role-based users. Here I’m taking an external role as “TENANT ADMINISTRATOR” and belongs to the organization 1 and applying the restrictions to it.

STEP 1: In the above XML file first we need to declare the variables of tutorials which we are going to hide, like ‘SEE_DOMAINS_ALLOWED’,’SEE_DATASOURCE_ALLOWED’ etc. inside the “securityMetadataSource” method. Shown below.

<property name="securityMetadataSource">
    <security:protect method="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.jaxrs.poc.hypermedia.workflow.data.UserWorkflowStorage.findByName" access="ADMINISTRATION_ALLOWED,CONFIGURATION_ALLOWED,SEE_DOMAINS_ALLOWED,SEE_DATASOURCE_ALLOWED,SEE_ADHOCS_ALLOWED,SEE_REPORTS_ALLOWED,SEE_DASHBOARDS_ALLOWED"/>
    <security:protect method="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.jaxrs.poc.hypermedia.workflow.data.UserWorkflowStorage.findAllByParentName" access="ADMINISTRATION_ALLOWED,CONFIGURATION_ALLOWED,SEE_DOMAINS_ALLOWED,SEE_DATASOURCE_ALLOWED,SEE_ADHOCS_ALLOWED,SEE_REPORTS_ALLOWED,SEE_DASHBOARDS_ALLOWED"/>

STEP 2: Define the above-declared sources and give restrictions as per the role authenticated users exactly below of the above code. I have shown the code below to display only ‘adhoc_views’ tutorials for the ‘Tenant_Administrator’.

<bean class="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.jaxrs.poc.hypermedia.workflow.service.WorkflowsSecurityFilter">
 <property name="supportedAttribute" value="SEE_ADHOCS_ALLOWED"/>
 <property name="allowedRoles">
 <property name="workflowsToSecure">

We can apply the conditions to ‘report’,’dashboard’,’dataSource’,’domain’ tutorials according to the role-based users in the above-mentioned way.

Pictorial View :

Pic 2: Before hiding the tutorials for the user.

Pic 3: After the logic applied on the particular user.

I hope it helps.
