Dubbo Authorization Policy

Configuration for access control on Dubbo services.

Authorization Policy scope (target) is determined by “metadata/namespace” and an optional “selector”.

  • “metadata/namespace” tells which namespace the policy applies. If set to root namespace, the policy applies to all namespaces in a mesh.

DubboAuthorizationPolicy

DubboAuthorizationPolicy enables access control on Dubbo services.

Field Type Description Required
rules Rule[]

Optional. A list of rules to match the request. A match occurs when at least one rule matches the request.

If not set, the match will never occur. This is equivalent to setting a default of deny for the target workloads.

No
action Action

Optional. The action to take if the request is matched with the rules.

No

Rule

Rule matches requests from a list of sources that perform a list of operations subject to a list of conditions. A match occurs when at least one source, one operation and all conditions matches the request. An empty rule is always matched.

Any string field in the rule supports Exact, Prefix, Suffix and Presence match:

  • Exact match: “abc” will match on value “abc”.
  • Prefix match: “abc*” will match on value “abc” and “abcd”.
  • Suffix match: “*abc” will match on value “abc” and “xabc”.
  • Presence match: “*” will match when value is not empty.
