We use Shibboleth to protect access to our Grouper UIs.

With Grouper 1.6.x I followed these nice instructions from the
Newcastly folks:

When attempting to do the same thing with Grouper 2.1.0 I
found that web.xml contains elements like


instead of <user-data-constraint>. So I treated
<auth-constraint> as if it were <user-data-constraint> and
following the instructions above I set the element content to

That caused the Lite UI to fail with a 403.

I then edited web.xml and did a global replace of
<auth-constraint> with <user-data-constraint> and that fixed
the Lite UI.

Two questions:

1) Did I do anything unsafe or incorrect by changing
<auth-constraint> to <user-data-constraint>?

2) Is <auth-constraint> correct and the Newcastle doc just
needs to be updated for 2.1.x or is that a distribution bug?
