Hi,
I have got a FORM based authentication in an application. In the Assembly Tool, I have specified the roles and the users. However when I use the method in the servlet request.isUserInRole("RoleName"), the authorization fails. But when I use the method the request.getRemoteUser(),I get the loginname of the User.
It would great help, if some can tell me how the roles mapping ca be done so that the request.isUserInRole("RoleName") does not fail.
Any help would be appreciated

Are you using AE multi-server version or AEs (Single-server version)? The answer is different in each. Part of the answer depends on WHAT repository you use for your users.

Hi Kyle,
I am using the NT Realm on an AE single server edition. I think there is some relation between the url-pattern and the security contraints that we specify in the web module.
Please tell me whether I am on the right track.

OK, in the AAT you specify which roles have access to which URL's. For instance, you may create a role "administrators" and give access to your servlets and JSP's to "administrators". Then you'd map this to your NT users using the Web console. The instructions for doing the second part are here:

So did you carry out the second step?
