Class CanUseFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    javax.servlet.Filter
    Direct Known Subclasses:
    CanUseWithAnyConfluenceAccessFilter

    public class CanUseFilter
    extends com.atlassian.core.filters.AbstractHttpFilter
    A filter which checks if the current user is permitted to use Confluence.

    If the request comes from the anonymous user and they are not permitted then a 401 error will be returned. If the request comes from an authenticated user and they are not permitted then a 403 error will be returned. This difference allows a client to perhaps offer an authentication mechanism to the anonymous user before a retry.

    If the request is permitted then this filter does nothing.

    Note: This will only allow users with licensed access to Confluence, or anonymous users if anonymous access is enabled globally. To also allow users with authenticated visitor access, use CanUseWithAnyConfluenceAccessFilter instead.
