Multiple security realms

Question asked by elsethag on Mar 22, 2007
In alfresco, is there just one security realm or can you attach different realm names to different users?

I notice that the WWW Authenticate header only shows up if there are no credentials in the request and you get a 401.  If you have incorrect credentials, you get nothing.  This doesn't matter if there is only one realm anyway.  The value of having a realm is that it can be used to set up a cache of user credentials mapped to locations on a server.  Its a hint to the user as to who they should log in as.
