I have a process that does some administrative tasks that requires a lot of Xpert.ivy permissions. The user that executes the task does not own all of the required permissions.

But I as a process designer know what I do and I want to give the user the possiblity to execute the administrative task without the necessary Xpert.ivy permissions. I implement the security in the process itself by guarding the process start with a certain role for example.

How can I disable programmatically Xpert.ivy Security/Permission checks?

You can disable Xpert.ivy Security checks with the following code:

import java.util.concurrent.Callable;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.server.ServerFactory;

public class AdministrationTask 
    public static void doAdminTask() throws Exception
        ServerFactory.getServer().getSecurityManager().executeAsSystem(new Callable<Void>(){
            public Void call() throws Exception {

                // Implement your code here. Permission checks are disabled in this method.

                return null;

Note that the method is called executeAsSystem(...). There is a similar method on the ISecurityContext called executeAsSystemUser(...). The difference between the two methods is that executeAsSystem(...) disables all permission checks whereas executeAsSystemUser(...) executes the code as user SYSTEM with permission checks enabled. With executeAsSystemUser(...) if the SYSTEM user does not own a necessary permission then Xpert.ivy will also throw a PermissionDeniedException. Whereas with executeAsSystem(...) no PermissionDeniedException will ever by thrown.
