Redirect to Different Pages after Login with Spring Security – 用Spring Security登录后重定向到不同页面

最后修改: 2013年 7月 14日

1. Overview


A common requirement for a web application is to redirect different types of users to different pages after login. An example of this would be redirecting standard users to a /homepage.html page and admin users to a /console.html page for example.


This article will show how to quickly and safely implement this mechanism using Spring Security. The article is also building on top of the Spring MVC tutorial which deals with setting up the core MVC stuff necessary for the project.

本文将介绍如何使用Spring Security快速、安全地实现这一机制。本文也是建立在Spring MVC 教程的基础上,该教程涉及设置项目所需的核心 MVC 东西。

2. The Spring Security Configuration


Spring Security provides a component that has the direct responsibility of deciding what to do after a successful authentication – the AuthenticationSuccessHandler.

Spring Security提供了一个组件,直接负责决定在认证成功后做什么–AuthenticationSuccessHandler

2.1. Basic Configuration


Let’s first configure a basic @Configuration and @Service class:


public class SecSecurityConfig {

    public SecurityFilterChain filterChain(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception {
            // ... endpoints
                .defaultSuccessUrl("/homepage.html", true)
            // ... other configuration   

The part of this configuration to focus on is the defaultSuccessUrl() method. After a successful login, any user will be redirected to homepage.html.


Furthermore, we need to configure users and their roles. For the purpose of this article, we’ll implement a simple UserDetailService with two users, each having one single role. For more on this topic, read our article Spring Security – Roles and Privileges.

此外,我们还需要配置用户和他们的角色。为了这篇文章的目的,我们将实现一个简单的UserDetailService,有两个用户,每个用户都有一个单一的角色。有关这一主题的更多信息,请阅读我们的文章Spring Security – Roles and Privileges

public class MyUserDetailsService implements UserDetailsService {

    private Map<String, User> roles = new HashMap<>();

    public void init() {
        roles.put("admin2", new User("admin", "{noop}admin1", getAuthority("ROLE_ADMIN")));
        roles.put("user2", new User("user", "{noop}user1", getAuthority("ROLE_USER")));

    public UserDetails loadUserByUsername(String username) {
        return roles.get(username);

    private List<GrantedAuthority> getAuthority(String role) {
        return Collections.singletonList(new SimpleGrantedAuthority(role));

Also note that in this simple example, we won’t use a password encoder, therefore the passwords are prefixed with {noop}.


2.2. Adding the Custom Success Handler


We now have two users with the two different roles: user and admin. After a successful login, both will be redirected to hompeage.html. Let’s look at how we can have a different redirect based on the user’s role.


First, we need to define a custom success handler as a bean:


public AuthenticationSuccessHandler myAuthenticationSuccessHandler(){
    return new MySimpleUrlAuthenticationSuccessHandler();

And then replace the defaultSuccessUrl call with the successHandler method, which accepts our custom success handler as a parameter:


public SecurityFilterChain filterChain(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception {
        // endpoints
        // other configuration      

2.3. XML Configuration

2.3. XML配置

Before looking at the implementation of our custom success handler, let’s also look at the equivalent XML configuration:


<http use-expressions="true" >
    <!-- other configuration -->
    <form-login login-page='/login.html' 

<beans:bean id="myAuthenticationSuccessHandler"
  class="" />

            <user name="user1" password="{noop}user1Pass" authorities="ROLE_USER" />
            <user name="admin1" password="{noop}admin1Pass" authorities="ROLE_ADMIN" />

3. The Custom Authentication Success Handler


Besides the AuthenticationSuccessHandler interface, Spring also provides a sensible default for this strategy component – the AbstractAuthenticationTargetUrlRequestHandler and a simple implementation – the SimpleUrlAuthenticationSuccessHandler. Typically these implementations will determine the URL after login and perform a redirect to that URL.


While somewhat flexible, the mechanism to determine this target URL does not allow the determination to be done programmatically – so we’re going to implement the interface and provide a custom implementation of the success handler. This implementation is going to determine the URL to redirect the user to after login based on the role of the user. 

虽然有一定的灵活性,但确定这个目标URL的机制不允许以编程方式进行确定 – 所以我们要实现这个接口,并提供一个自定义的成功处理程序的实现。该实现将根据用户的角色来确定用户在登录后重定向到的 URL。

First of all, we need to override the onAuthenticationSuccess method:


public class MySimpleUrlAuthenticationSuccessHandler
  implements AuthenticationSuccessHandler {
    protected Log logger = LogFactory.getLog(this.getClass());

    private RedirectStrategy redirectStrategy = new DefaultRedirectStrategy();

    public void onAuthenticationSuccess(HttpServletRequest request, 
      HttpServletResponse response, Authentication authentication)
      throws IOException {
        handle(request, response, authentication);

Our customized method calls two helper methods:


protected void handle(
        HttpServletRequest request,
        HttpServletResponse response, 
        Authentication authentication
) throws IOException {

    String targetUrl = determineTargetUrl(authentication);

    if (response.isCommitted()) {
                "Response has already been committed. Unable to redirect to "
                        + targetUrl);

    redirectStrategy.sendRedirect(request, response, targetUrl);

Where the following method does the actual work and maps the user to the target URL:


protected String determineTargetUrl(final Authentication authentication) {

    Map<String, String> roleTargetUrlMap = new HashMap<>();
    roleTargetUrlMap.put("ROLE_USER", "/homepage.html");
    roleTargetUrlMap.put("ROLE_ADMIN", "/console.html");

    final Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> authorities = authentication.getAuthorities();
    for (final GrantedAuthority grantedAuthority : authorities) {
        String authorityName = grantedAuthority.getAuthority();
        if(roleTargetUrlMap.containsKey(authorityName)) {
            return roleTargetUrlMap.get(authorityName);

    throw new IllegalStateException();

Note that this method will return the mapped URL for the first role the user has. So if a user has multiple roles, the mapped URL will be the one that matches the first role given in the authorities collection.


protected void clearAuthenticationAttributes(HttpServletRequest request) {
    HttpSession session = request.getSession(false);
    if (session == null) {

The determineTargetUrl – which is the core of the strategy – simply looks at the type of user (determined by the authority) and picks the target URL based on this role.


So, an admin user – determined by the ROLE_ADMIN authority – will be redirected to the console page after login, while the standard user – as determined by ROLE_USER – will be redirected to the homepage.


4. Conclusion


As always, the code presented in this article is available over on GitHub. This is a Maven-based project, so it should be easy to import and run as it is.
