Refreshing Groups

Mar 8, 2012 at 2:17 PM

I am having an issue where Waffle appears to not have the latest list of user groups during Tomcat authentication (valve). I added my user to a local group, restarted Tomcat, the browser, and the log still does not show my user in that local group. I am able to use C# library to enumerate groups, and the group is displayed properly when I do this. Any ideas? Is there some kind of caching used in the authenticator? Is it possible that if the KRB ticket is valid, that no new group enumeration happens?

This is caused by the group cache. But I have no idea how to force expiration. I think it's called "universal group caching". See if Google helps.
