Person service

Use this information to understand and configure of person service.

The PersonService interface is the API by which nodes of the person type, as defined in contentModel.xml, should be accessed.

The PersonService is responsible for all of the following:

  • Obtaining a reference to the Person node for a given user name
  • Determining if a person entry exists for a user
  • Potentially creating missing people entries with default settings on demand
  • Supplying a list of mutable properties for each person
  • Creating, deleting, and altering personal information

The beans to support the PersonService and its configuration can be found in authentication-services-context.xml. The principle configuration options are around how people are created on demand if users are managed by using LDAP or some other external user repository.
