Problem viewing space


In the Gigaspaces UI browser, when I locate a secured space, the GUI says I cannot look at the classes or query unless I have the <monitor pu=""> permission or the <space operation=""> permission. How do I set these?

Hi Shay,

So I've created the space programmaticaly:

UrlSpaceConfigurer spaceConfig = new UrlSpaceConfigurer(spaceName);
spaceConfig.userDetails(userName, password);
IJSpace space = spaceConfig.space();
GigaSpaceConfigurer gsConfigurer = new GigaSpaceConfigurer(space);
GigaSpace gigaSpace = gsConfigurer.gigaSpace();

That means the principal for accessing the space is defined by userName, password.
In the security management UI, I created a user with those credentials and gave it monitor PU permission. However, I still cannot view the space.

Putting aside your code example, when you login using the UI, are you able to see the space? Make sure that you have both of the Monitor PU and at least read space permission. If this is still a problem, please attach your gs-directory.fsm file for us to examine.

Yes, I can see the space, and it has the red lock icon. When I click on the query or classes branch on the tree, this is where it says I don't have the PU monitor permission. I have tried created a principal using the same userdetails that were used to create the space and giving it every permission. After login and logout, nothing changes.

One thing I notice is that when I login, the dialog box that shows the history of login has no entries (neither green or red). Does this mean I didn't log in?

Is there a way I can examine the contents of my gs-directory.fsm myself?

The login dialog box should indicate (in green) that you have successfully logged into the space. The space red lock icon should turn green.
If this is not happening then you are not logged in.

The contents of the gs-directory.fsm file can be examined by the administrator user (which you probably used when adding yourself as a user).
If you are still running into problems, send it over.

I had some time lately to get back to this problem.

I have noticed that if my space is running in a multicast enabled mode, I can log in with the dialog showing green entry. As a result, the lock icon turns green.

However, when I run with com.gs.multicast.enabled=false (preferred), when I log in the dialog box shows no entries.

Any idea what's wrong?
