Can't use spring security authorize

We've just impelmented spring security (with spring 2.5) in our web app where I'm struggling with some things.
I'm trying to do a redirect (from within a loginsuccess.jsp) according to the role of a user.
I've put the following in the jsp (this is from spring security tutorial) to test out:


Somehow I never pass this test even if the user has granted authority of ROLE_SOC

If I retrieve the sessionScope in this jsp, I can see the role:
{javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.fmt.request.charset=ISO-8859-1, SPRING_SECURITY_LAST_USERNAME=user@somemail.com, SPRING_SECURITY_CONTEXT=org.springframework.security.context.SecurityContextImpl@a9a3fb41: Authentication: org.springframework.security.providers.UsernamePasswordAuthenticationToken@a9a3fb41: Principal: org.springframework.security.userdetails.User@0: Username: user@somemail.com; Password: [PROTECTED]; Enabled: true; AccountNonExpired: true; credentialsNonExpired: true; AccountNonLocked: true; Granted Authorities: ROLE_SOC; Password: [PROTECTED]; Authenticated: true; Details: org.springframework.security.ui.WebAuthenticationDetails@0: RemoteIpAddress: 127.0.0.1; SessionId: 1128102A01AC8D176926A91795BF2B7A; Granted Authorities: ROLE_SOC}

Am I missing something here?

What happens if you, just for testing purposes. Not have the loginsuccess.jsp page redirect. First try forwarding to see what happens. Then as the last test, just put a link on that loginsuccess.jsp page that sends you to the last page to see if the security works.

As far as using the tag library in your page, it is correct.

Just out of curiosity. That last page URL, is it in your intercept-url as being intercepted for security?

I think I've found the problem. It's indeed the intercept-url configuration that caused the problem.


Without any filtering there was no security activity inside the loginsuccess.jsp
After I added the access parameter for my roles:

I was able to use the security inside the screen. Thanks for your pointer ;-)
