Hi Anton,

I don't think that this will work in that way, because CRXDE Liste is not a Sling application; therefor you should write a plain Http Servlet and register it via Felix. Then you can do that.

Hi Jörg,

Yep, you are right, today I faced with issue that crxde doesn't show anything when nosamplecontent runmode used. I googled and found out that CRXde is not a sling app and if I'm not mistaken, WebDav protocol used to get jcr tree in CRXde.

Hi,

You can write a sling filter with a pattern property. Check runmode. Get UserId. Then get Authorizable from UserManager. Then you can call memberOf() method on Authorizable.

This is first what came to my mind. Maybe there are better ways to reach you goal.

Hi Jörg, the above solution holds good if there is a dispatcher infront of the author instance, also the admin will lose the access to crx if he moves out of the network for some reason (if the admin is on a travel for eg.), is it a good practice to consider IPs in this scenario?

Whats the alternative if there is no dispatcher in front of the author instance?

Hi,

removing the links to https://hostname/crx/de/index.jsp doesn't help, if people are aware of it. Access to CRXDE Lite cannot be controlled using ACLs (in an AEM/Oak sense),  but only by implementing network ACLs; for example by alloweding only IPs from the admin network acess to /crx by implementing such rules through apache httpd config.
