classBootStrap {

definit = { servletContext ->
		defuserRole = newcom.numahub.Role(authority:"ROLE_USER").save(flush:true)
		def user = newcom.numahub.User()
		user.username = "abhishek"
		user.password = "password" = ""
		user.firstName= "Abhishek"
		user.enabled = true
		user.accountExpired = false
		user.accountLocked = false
		user.passwordExpired = false
		newcom.numahub.UserRole(user: user, role: userRole).save(flush: true, 
insert: true);
defdestroy = {

Step 10: Add a Handler in index.jsp

To see if the Login functionality is working, I added the code below in index.gsp page:

You are now Logged in as

Login Here

Step 11: Start Mongo Server

Then I started the Mongo Server on my machine. You can find the instructions on the MongoDb site for the same.

Step 12: Launch the App

And then I launched the App:

Configuring Spring Security Core ...
... finished configuring Spring Security Core
| Server running. Browse to http://localhost:8080/NumaHub

Verifying The Details



Clicked on 'Login here', entered username and password as specified in the BootStrap.groovy:


And saw a message like this:


Using a Utility that lets you see the Database, you can verify the how it gets saved.

The following Collections were created


The contents of the collections were:

The Role

  "_id": { "$oid" : "5235aebdc2e6b9cd860aa951" },
  "authority": "ROLE_USER",
  "version": 0

The User

  "_id": { "$oid" : "5235aec4c2e6b9cd860aa953" },
  "accountExpired": false,
  "accountLocked": false,
  "email": "",
  "enabled": true,
  "firstName": "Abhishek",
  "lastName": "Mishra",
  "password": "5e884898da28047151d0e56f8dc6292773603d0d6aabbdd62a11ef721d1542d8",
  "passwordExpired": false,
  "username": "abhishek",
  "version": 0

And the User Role

  "_id": { "$oid" : "5235b0e3c2e6b107f99c44a0" },
  "role": { "$oid" : "5235b0e1c2e6b107f99c449e" },
  "user": { "$oid" : "5235b0e3c2e6b107f99c449f" }
