Re: Deferred Entitlements issue with OpenMAMA 2.4.0

Hi Christopher,

Good spot - yes this is definitely an issue - would appreciate any forthcoming pull requests.

Alternatively as a workaround for now, you can always disable deferred entitlements and just use the noop entitlement bridge now to unblock your testing.

For the record, longer term, I would actually like to move away from the current implementation of deferred entitlements and towards a deferred entitlement bridge which will validate bridge capabilities before permitting the entitlement bridge's enforcement mechanism to be bypassed.

I’m developing a bridge with deferred entitlements using OM 2.4.0 but I keep getting an error status MAMA_STATUS_NO_BRIDGE_IMPL when using mamaSubscription_setupBasic. This occurs on any call to mamaSubscription_setupBasic, causing unit test failures and example program to error.

I used mamalistenc and got these logs before the error message:


2016-04-05 09:54:23:502: Entitlements checking at subscription creation deferred to myBridge bridge [0x13c6910]

2016-04-05 09:54:23:502: mamaSubscription_setupBasic(): Could not find entitlement bridge!


Looking at subscription.c: mamaSubscription_setupBasic it seems that if entitlements are deferred, mamaEntBridge is never set to anything other than NULL making mamaSubscription_setupBasic always return MAMA_STATUS_NO_BRIDGE_IMPL. Is this how deferred entitlements are meant to work?


I’m looking for confirmation that this is indeed an issue and if so, I’ll raise an issue/pull request on git hub.
