Web-based interface for users/authorities/permissions management
our project extensively uses Spring Security for authentication/authorization purposes. However, we are missing a simple user interface for CRUD management operations on users, authorities, and permissions. I assume such an interface is a common requirement for any application dealing with a relatively large number of users and correspondent authorities/permissions. Moreover, this interface should be reusable across different applications, given that Spring Security operates on a small number of known DB tables via standard user management API.
Hence, before implementing such a user management application from scratch I just wanted to make sure nobody has done it before and there are no open source projects related to this. I haven't been able to google anything, so any info/links would be highly appreciated.

You'll find a JdbcUserDetailsManager in the codebase which offers basic UserDetails management.

Thanks for the reply. I'm looking for a web-based admin console which would use Spring's user managemenent API (like JdbcUserDetailsManager, JdbcAclService and JdbcMutableAclService) and provide authorized users with an interface for creating/updating/deleting users, granting/revoking permissions/authorities, etc.
Has anybody seen such an admin console for Spring Security?
