I have installed and configured JForum. It works fine using the default authentication method.
I have a user belonging to a group attached to one category. When I log in, using the default authentication method, I can enter and get the forums I am authorized to see.
It is perfect.
Since JForum will be called by another webapp, using a JDBCRealm authentication, I have set the authentication type to SSO and defined the security constraints into web.xml
Now I can login (say with username gilles), but once logged I cannot see the forums. I have only access to one general forum, but I have not access to the forums of my group. Again, this worked with the default authentication method. User gilles is defined with the users (I need that to tell to what group it belongs to).
Could you please tell me what I missed in the configuration. I do not want my users to have to sign in again.
I have the same problem with the Admin. I have defined an Admin user in my database so that I can authenticate using the Realm. I can log into Jforum but do not have access to the Administration panel.
Thank you for your help.
