Resource resolver returning null...

Avatar

Level 2

Hello all,

 

I have two classes. Class A, is where I am calling a method to Class B (Which contains code that's trying to get the resource resolver).

Code for class B where I am getting the null error:

 

@component

@ServiceMode

public class NotifyAdminImpl implements NotifyAdminService
{

private static final Logger LOGGER = LoggerFactory.getLogger(NotifyAdminImpl.class);

@reference
ResourceResolverFactory resolverFactory;

public void notifyAdmin(String location,String exception)
{
LOGGER.debug("We are inside the notifyAdmin method.");

try
{
LOGGER.debug("Begin.");

String timeStamp = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("MM_dd_yyyy_HH_mm_ss").format(LocalDateTime.now());

HashMap<String, Object> authInfo = new HashMap<String, Object>();

authInfo.put("user.name","serviceadmin");
authInfo.put("user.password",new java.lang.String("randomPassword!LOL").toCharArray());

ResourceResolver resourceResolver = resolverFactory.getResourceResolver(authInfo); // line where it nulls out.

Session session = resourceResolver.adaptTo(Session.class);

Resource res = resourceResolver.getResource("/apps/errorHandle/error");

Node node = res.adaptTo(Node.class);

Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();

c.setTimeInMillis(c.getTimeInMillis());

String nodeName = location + timeStamp;

String path = node.getPath();

LOGGER.debug("PATH OF INCOMING NODE IS: " + path);

Node errorNode = node.addNode(nodeName,"nt:unstructured");

errorNode.setProperty("jcr:created", c);

errorNode.setProperty("exception", exception);

errorNode.setProperty("isEmailSent", false);

session.save();

session.logout();

LOGGER.debug("End.");

}
catch (Exception e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
LOGGER.info("An exception in notifyAdmin method occurred due to: " + e.getMessage(),e);
}

}

}

 

Class A code snippet of calling this method from Class B that's within my OSGi bundle:

NotifyAdminImpl notify = new NotifyAdminImpl();

notify.notifyAdmin("this_is_an_error",printExceptionString);

Hi @christopherv662 ,

 

You can get resource resolver through sub service. All you have to do is -

 

1. Create a System user and give proper permission.

2. Configure "Apache Sling Service User Mapper Service" for System user and Service mapping.

3. Use below code to get the Resource resolver-

 

public ResourceResolver getResourceResolver() {
ResourceResolver resourceResolver = null;
try {
Map<String, Object> param = new HashMap<>();
param.put(ResourceResolverFactory.SUBSERVICE, "writeService");
resourceResolver = resolverFactory.getServiceResourceResolver(param);
} catch (Exception e) {
}
return resourceResolver;
}

 

I have explained the step by step process in below video-

Hi, I tried this and I am still getting the null. I created the service user and mapped it as you did.

Hi @christopherv662,

 

First of all, try to see, why the way suggested by @Ritesh_Mittal is not working for you. Here's another article for your reference - 

https://one-inside.com/aem6-resourceresolver-access-in-services/

 

Secondly, try to use 

ResourceResolver resourceResolver = resourceResolverFactory.getServiceResourceResolver(null) - If the param is null, the resource resolver returned will generally not be authenticated and only provide minimal privileges
 
Thirdly, What is class A? Do you have access to Resource/Request in that class, so you can pass resource resolver as a parameter, while calling class B
 
Thanks,
Chitra

Hi @christopherv662 

 

Can you try "Apache Sling Service User Mapper Service Amendment" rather than "Apache Sling Service User Mapper Service".

@christopherv662  If you're using OSGi R6 annotations, error is probably  beacuse  @Reference annotation would not wrok as below. Try changing it to @OSGIService

@reference
ResourceResolverFactory resolverFactory;
