Today we look at how to add a role-based security to secure a BPEL.
In WebSphere Integration Developer(WID) 6 there was no direct way to add a role to a BPEL at assembly level.
In WID 7 we can assign a role to the whole BPEL this could not be done in WID 6. It makes security much easier.
All you have to do is open your assembly diagram as in our example project below:
Click anywhere on the assembly diagram. Then click Properties on the BPEL and then click All Qualifiers.
Expand ExtractionProcess. As you can see above the is Security Identity. Here you can place a security role:
There you have it the entire Process is secured. On deployment make sure that role is allocated to a user that should have access to the BPEL application:
That’s all there is to it! Enjoy
