How to enable per-blob access control to blobs served from BlobServer (Doc ID 1508511.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 21, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 7.6.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Are there any ways in BlobServer to restrict access to blobs on a per-blob basis, for example based on the session of the requesting user?

We have an authenticated portal application that pulls content directly from the WebCenter Sites repository via a custom RestFul interface which will return fully rendered HTML snippets, we know that we can control access to Site Entries that return the HTML fragments via custom ACLs, but need to develop an equivalent access control for BlobServer. We want to protect against a scenario where an URL could be manually constructed to retrieve documents that the requesting user is not entitled to see.
