ORM based RbacUser module for ZF 2

RbacUserDoctrineOrm offers a module that combines ZfcRbac & ZfcUser together with the Doctrine Orm module from ZF2 so that you can focus on getting started.

Requirements & their dependencies


Installation of RbacUserDoctrineOrm uses composer. For composer documentation, please refer to

Installation steps

  1. cd my/project/directory

  2. create a composer.json file with following contents:

        "require": {
            "esserj/rbac-user-doctrine-orm": "dev-master"
  3. install composer via curl -s | php (on windows, download and execute it with PHP)

  4. run php composer.phar install

  5. open my/project/directory/configs/application.config.php and add the following to your modules key:

  6. run the schema-full.sql file found in my/project/directory/vendor/esserj/rbac-user-doctrine-orm/data or alternatively run the schema.sql if you already installed ZfcUser or ZfcRbac schemas

  7. setup doctrine database parameters by adding the following to your my/project/config/autoload/local.php:

       'doctrine' => array(
           'connection' => array(
               // default connection name
               'orm_default' => array(
                   'driverClass' => 'Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOMySql\Driver',
                   'params' => array(
                       'host'     => 'localhost',
                       'port'     => '3306',
                       'user'     => '', //put your user here
                       'password' => '', //put your pass here
                       'dbname'   => '', //put your database here
  1. see the ZfcUser & ZfcRbac pages for controller/view plugins to get started


Providers are listeners that hook into various events to provide roles and permissions. ZfcRbac ships with several providers that you can use out of the box, but none support ORM, this is where we come in:

  • Generic Providers:
    • Permissions & Roles (RbacUserDoctrineOrm\Provider\AdjacencyList\Role): uses Doctrine ORM to inject Role entities that have permission entities compatible with the ZfcRbac RoleInterface
You can’t perform that action at this time.
