Session Role Manager Build Status Coverage Status Godoc

Session Role Manager is the Session-based role manager for Casbin. With this library, Casbin can load session-based role hierarchy (user-role mapping) from Casbin policy or save role hierarchy to it. The session is only active in the specified time range.


go get

Simple Example

package main

import (
	fileadapter ""
	sessionrolemanager ""

func main() {
	// NewEnforcer(modelPath, policyPath) automatically uses the default
	// role manager when loading policy. So if we want to use a custom
	// role manager, and this role manager relies on Casbin policy,
	// we should manually set the role manager before loading policy.
	e, err := casbin.NewEnforcer("examples/rbac_model_with_sessions.conf")
	if err != nil {

	// Manually set an adapter.
	a := fileadapter.NewAdapter("examples/rbac_policy_with_sessions.csv")

	// Use our role manager.
	rm := sessionrolemanager.NewRoleManager(10)

	// If our role manager relies on Casbin policy (like reading "g"
	// policy rules), then we have to set the role manager before loading
	// policy.
	// Otherwise, we can set the role manager at any time, because role
	// manager has nothing to do with the adapter.

	// Check the permission.
	// the 4th arg is the querying time in UNIX time format.
	e.Enforce("alice", "data1", "read", "1508503308708987131")
