Usage Examples

Client Usage

use Segrax\OpenPolicyAgent\Client;

$apiPolicy = "package my.api
              default allow=false
              allow {
                  input.path = [\"abc\"]
                  input.user == \"a random user\"

$client = new Client([ Client::OPT_AGENT_URL => '',
                       Client::OPT_AUTH_TOKEN => 'MyToken']);

// Push a policy to the agent
$client->policyUpdate('my/api', $apiPolicy, false);

// Execute the policy
$inputs = [ 'path' => ['abc'],
            'user' => 'a random user'];

$res = $client->policy('my/api', $inputs, false, false, false, false );
if ($res->getByName('allow') === true ) {
    // Do stuff

Authorization Middleware

Create the client, and add the Authorization object onto the middleware stack

use Segrax\OpenPolicyAgent\Client;
use Segrax\OpenPolicyAgent\Middleware\Authorization;

$app = AppFactory::create();

$client = new Client([Client::OPT_AGENT_URL => '']);
$app->add(new Authorization(
                [Authorization::OPT_POLICY => 'auth/api'],

Distributor Middleware

Insert the middleware, it will respond to bundle requests at /opa/bundles/{service_name} for users with a valid JWT with the subfield 'opa'

use Segrax\OpenPolicyAgent\Client;
use Segrax\OpenPolicyAgent\Middleware\Distributor;

$app = AppFactory::create();

$app->add(new Distributor(
                        [Distributor::OPT_POLICY_PATH => __DIR__ . '/opa',
                         Distributor::OPT_AGENT_USER => 'opa'],
                        new StreamFactory(),

// Add a GET route for the opa bundle route
$app->get('/opa/bundles/{name}', function (Request $request, Response $response, array $args) {
    return $response->withStatus(404);
