Invalid CSRF Token ‘null’ was found on the request parameter ‘csrf’ or header ‘X-CSRF-TOKEN’.Access to the specified resource has been forbidden

I tried after adding below code snippets one after another but error remain same.

Hi
What do you suggest to use for controlling the method access and also the data access. If you were to do it how would you do it. The way spring supports roles seem to be static. What if somebody wants dynamically creates a new roles and and how do you control the access on those methods. Obviously we can not use annotations as we do not know the new role upfront what an admin would create. Is there a way I can achieve like this user/role can read but it can read only his data.

Hi, always nice to see your tutorials. However, I miss one project, how to integrate an external oauth provider with spring. All examples include using user/password. Wouldn’t it be nice with a tutorial on how to secure a web app with for example Google of Facebook (not using thier sdk but rather show how to use an external oauth server).

Thanks, Jonas
