Mozilla Persona Authentication for Symfony2

branch: master


Mozilla Persona Authentication for Symfony2

With this bundle you can easily setup a Mozilla Persona authentication for your Symfony2 project.


This version of the bundle requires Symfony 2.1+ and FOSUserBundle.


Add PersonaBundle in your composer.json:

    "require": {
        "proxiweb/persona-bundle": "*"

Add PersonaBundle in AppKernel.php

  ... new Proxiweb\Bundle\PersonaBundle\ProxiwebPersonaBundle(),

Now tell composer to download the bundle by running the command:

$ php composer.phar update proxiweb/persona-bundle

Composer will install the bundle to your project's vendor/proxiweb directory.


  1. Configure FOSUserBundle
  2. Login By Email
  3. Authentication urls configuration
  4. Add Persona's assets
  5. Demo page

2.Login by Email

Persona authenticates users with their email, so you must configure FOSUserBundle to enable login with email :

# app/config/security.yml
            # replace fos_user.user_provider.username with fos_user.user_provider.username_email
            id: fos_user.user_provider.username_email

3. Authentication urls configuration

Persona logs the user by perfoming an ajax request to an url which performs authentication. PersonaBundle achieves the authentication process started by accessing a secured url

# app/config/security.yml

            pattern: ^/persona/login    # the secured url which performs authentication
            persona: true
            context: primary_auth       # use the same context as the FOSUserBundle
            anonymous:    true          # so the persona & login authentication will share the same 
        main:                           # security session
            pattern: ^/
                provider: fos_userbundle
                csrf_provider: form.csrf_provider
            logout:       true
            anonymous:    true
            context: primary_auth

        - { path: ^/login$, role: IS_AUTHENTICATED_ANONYMOUSLY }
        - { path: ^/resetting, role: IS_AUTHENTICATED_ANONYMOUSLY }
        - { path: ^/persona/login, role: ROLE_ADMIN }
        - { path: ^/persona/demo, role: IS_AUTHENTICATED_ANONYMOUSLY }   # optional demo page
        - { path: ^/persona/logout, role: IS_AUTHENTICATED_ANONYMOUSLY } # logout url

4. Add Persona's assets

Add the script to the pages which performs authentication and pages you wants Persona to autolog.

<script src=""></script> 

After this script, include the script persona_auth.js provided with this bundle. You can use the stylesheet persona-buttons.css to style login and logout button.

5.Demo page

PersonaBundle provides a demo page at /persona/demo. It uses assetic, so if you wants load this page, you have to add PersonaBundle to Assetic's bundles parameter. Create a user with FOSUserBundle, signin with your mail, validate your email if this is the first time you use Persona, enjoy.
