Usage and Configuration
Here is an annotated sample configuration file:
create this file in config/autoload/BjyAuthorize.global.php
<?php return array( 'bjyauthorize' => array( // set the 'guest' role as default (must be defined in a role provider) 'default_role' => 'guest', /* this module uses a meta-role that inherits from any roles that should * be applied to the active user. the identity provider tells us which * roles the "identity role" should inherit from. * * for ZfcUser, this will be your default identity provider */ 'identity_provider' => 'BjyAuthorize\Provider\Identity\ZfcUserZendDb', /* role providers simply provide a list of roles that should be inserted * into the Zend\Acl instance. the module comes with two providers, one * to specify roles in a config file and one to load roles using a * Zend\Db adapter. */ 'role_providers' => array( /* here, 'guest' and 'user are defined as top-level roles, with * 'admin' inheriting from user */ 'BjyAuthorize\Provider\Role\Config' => array( 'guest' => array(), 'user' => array('children' => array( 'admin' => array(), )), ), // this will load roles from the user_role table in a database // format: user_role(role_id(varchar), parent(varchar)) 'BjyAuthorize\Provider\Role\ZendDb' => array( 'table' => 'user_role', 'role_id_field' => 'role_id', 'parent_role_field' => 'parent', ), ), // resource providers provide a list of resources that will be tracked // in the ACL. like roles, they can be hierarchical 'resource_providers' => array( 'BjyAuthorize\Provider\Resource\Config' => array( 'pants' => array(), ), ), /* rules can be specified here with the format: * array(roles (array), resource, [privilege (array|string), assertion]) * assertions will be loaded using the service manager and must implement * Zend\Acl\Assertion\AssertionInterface. * *if you use assertions, define them using the service manager!* */ 'rule_providers' => array( 'BjyAuthorize\Provider\Rule\Config' => array( 'allow' => array( // allow guests and users (and admins, through inheritance) // the "wear" privilege on the resource "pants" array(array('guest', 'user'), 'pants', 'wear') ), // Don't mix allow/deny rules if you are using role inheritance. // There are some weird bugs. 'deny' => array( // ... ), ), ), /* Currently, only controller and route guards exist */ 'guards' => array( /* If this guard is specified here (i.e. it is enabled), it will block * access to all controllers and actions unless they are specified here. * You may omit the 'action' index to allow access to the entire controller */ 'BjyAuthorize\Guard\Controller' => array( array('controller' => 'index', 'action' => 'index', 'roles' => array('guest','user')), array('controller' => 'index', 'action' => 'stuff', 'roles' => array('user')), array('controller' => 'zfcuser', 'roles' => array()) ), /* If this guard is specified here (i.e. it is enabled), it will block * access to all routes unless they are specified here. */ 'BjyAuthorize\Guard\Route' => array( array('route' => 'zfcuser', 'roles' => array('user')), array('route' => 'zfcuser/logout', 'roles' => array('user')), array('route' => 'zfcuser/login', 'roles' => array('guest')), array('route' => 'zfcuser/register', 'roles' => array('guest')), ), ), ), );
Helpers and Plugins
There are view helpers and controller plugins registered for this module.
In either a controller or a view script, you can call
$this->isAllowed($resource[, $privilege]), which will query the ACL
using the currently authenticated (or default) user's roles.
