Authz is an authorization middleware for Gin, it's based on


go get

Simple Example

package main

import (


func main() {
  // load the casbin model and policy from files, database is also supported.
  e := casbin.NewEnforcer("authz_model.conf", "authz_policy.csv")

  // define your router, and use the Casbin authz middleware.
  // the access that is denied by authz will return HTTP 403 error.
  router := gin.New()


The authorization determines a request based on {subject, object, action}, which means what subject can perform what action on what object. In this plugin, the meanings are:

  1. subject: the logged-on user name
  2. object: the URL path for the web resource like "dataset1/item1"
  3. action: HTTP method like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, or the high-level actions you defined like "read-file", "write-blog"

For how to write authorization policy and other details, please refer to the Casbin's documentation.
