[jboss-user] [JBoss jBPM] - Authorization in jBPM

Hi , I am working with jBPM v 3.2.3 with Spring Modules .9 (with Spring 2.5.2 and Hibernate 3.2.6) against a mySQL 5.1 DB. I can deploy Process Definitions and create Process Instances fine, However, it appears jBPM is not using any form Authorizaton. According to the manual I can use IdentityAuthorizationService to check a Tasks permission versus the actorid calling the task. Unfortunately this class is not implemented. Also, I'm wondering do I have to explicitly call this checkPermissions method of IdentityAuthorizationService each time I need to signal a token or is there a way of wiring the authorization up to the signalling process automatically?

I've added the following service element to jbpm.cgf.xml: 

service name="authorization" factory="org.jbpm.security.authorization.IdentityAuthorizationServiceFactory" 

in the <jbpm-context> element.

Many thanks for your time. Phil
