Class GenericHierarchyPolicyProcessor

All Implemented Interfaces:

@Component public class GenericHierarchyPolicyProcessor extends Object implements PolicyProcessor
A generic policy processor to handle the write access for hierarchical business unit structures. To add a strategy to a specific entity model a manually created relation to the business unit must exist. Additionally the hierarchy strategy must be contributed for the entity model. Example of a contribution which defines a hierarchical business unit strategy for the User entity:

 public HierarchySpecificationContribution xyHierarchySpecificationContribution() {
     HierarchySpecificationContribution hierarchySpecification = new HierarchySpecificationContribution();
     return hierarchySpecification;
This policy processor can handle different types of strategies for different models. strategies: - HIERARCHICAL - SELF - ALL See HierarchyStrategyType for more information about the different strategies.
