When there are multiple secured resources in an application it might be a little tough to handle all the permissions in Jazn-data.xml because of its growing size.
There is an easy way to fix this problem. You can make use of wild card feature of OPSS.
Eg: Lets say you have Taskflow1.xml, Taskflow2.xml, Taskflow3.xml, Taskflow4.xml and Taskflow5.xml used in your application and all of them need to have authenticated role.
Instead of assigning permissions to each of them one by one, you can add a wildcard permission under desired role in source mode of jazn-data.xml -
You can use similar approach to any valid resource available.
Hope it helps:-)
