Role Based Access Control in WildFly 8

One of the big new features in WildFly 8 is the ability to enforce role based access control on managment operations. I recorded some videos that describe how you can use this powerful feature, and also demonstrate it in action. Check them out!


In the first part of the series, I walk through the basics of Role Based Access Control, and show how you can use standard roles within the WildFly Administration Console.


In the second video, I show how you can configure roles and setup users which map to roles.


In the final video, I show how you can configure constraints which allow you to tweak the behavior of roles.
