Can't send invitations with SSO (external auth)

Hi all,

I just got my setup to work:

* Alfresco 4.0.a community edition
* External authentication (Shibboleth SSO)

When I log in to the share app and want to send an invitation, I get an error message. The log reveals this:

Caused by: org.alfresco.service.cmr.invitation.InvitationExceptionForbidden: 09110036 "Current user, share-system, is not a Site Manager for site: (…)"
   at org.alfresco.repo.invitation.InvitationServiceImpl.checkManagerRole(
   at org.alfresco.repo.invitation.InvitationServiceImpl.startNominatedInvite(
   at org.alfresco.repo.invitation.InvitationServiceImpl.inviteNominated(
   at org.alfresco.repo.invitation.InvitationServiceImpl.inviteNominated(

It seems like the proxy user substitution for the "share-system" proxy user doesn't work here.

Thanks in advance for any hints!

Best regards,
