Re: Federated Identity Management (bursting and zones)


Doh! I'm an idiot. Write that down.

Eric, you're correct, we don't need to sync the AuthZ servers. We only need to pass the Resource Group ID's along after the user authenticates (thanks Jorge for reminding me.)

This is along the lines of what you have been suggesting with different User accounts, but without overloading Accounts and sticking to the "Collection of Resources" idea (as used in RBAC, SAML, etc)

There is a complexity here. When we create new Resources on the SP side we need to know which Resource Group to create it on behalf of. 

I've put a little description of the problem here: http://wiki.openstack.org/FederatedAuthZwithZones#On_Behalf_Of

The rest of the wiki has been updated to reflect these changes.
