We are using LDAP authentication, so when user enter Active Directory user/pass he is able to view jsp page.

I need all users(any role users) that authenticated successfully using LDAP will be able to process to site, so I am able to show apropriate content based on their roles.
How can I configure security-constraint to allow any role get in?
<role-name>*</role-name> doesn't work!

Wanna code??
