dot-rbac-guard

Defines authorization guards that authorize users to certain parts of an application based on various criteria. If the authorization service can be used to check authorization on a narrow level, the guards are meant to work as gateways to bigger parts of an application. Usually, you'll want to use both methods in an application for additional security.

Installation

Run the following command in your project's root directory

$ composer require dotkernel/dot-rbac-guard

Please note that this module is built around the authorization service defined in module dot-rbac. Running the above command will also install that package. You'll have to first configure dot-rbac before using this module.

Configuration

As with many DotKernel modules, we focus on the configuration based approach of customizing the module for your needs.

After installing, make sure you merge the module's ConfigProvider with your application's config to make sure required dependencies and default module configuration is registered. Create a configuration file for this module in your 'config/autoload' folder

Register the RbacGuardMiddleware in the pipe

The last step in order to use this package is to register the middleware. This middleware triggers the authorization event. You MUST insert this middleware between the routing middleware and the dispatch middleware of the application, because the guards need the RouteResult in order to get the matched route and params.

middleware-pipeline.global.php
//...

'routing' => [
    'middleware' => [
        ApplicationFactory::ROUTING_MIDDLEWARE,

        //...

        \Dot\Rbac\Guard\Middleware\RbacGuardMiddleware::class,

        //...

        ApplicationFactory::DISPATCH_MIDDLEWARE,
    ],
    'priority' => 1,
],

//...
