NAME ^

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::FromSub::Hash - A storage class for Catalyst Authentication using one Catalyst Model class (hash returned)

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Catalyst qw/Authentication/;

    __PACKAGE__->config->{authentication} = 
                    {  
                        default_realm => 'members',

DESCRIPTION ^

Catalyst::Authentication::Store::FromSub::Hash class provides access to authentication information by using a Catalyst Model sub auth.

In sub auth of the Catalyst model, we can use cache there. it would avoid the hit of db every request.

CONFIGURATION ^

The FromSub::Hash authentication store is activated by setting the store config class element to 'FromSub::Hash'. See the Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication documentation for more details on configuring the store.

The FromSub::Hash storage module has several configuration options

    __PACKAGE__->config->{authentication} = 
                    {  
                        default_realm => 'members',
                        realms => {
                            members => {
                                credential => {
                                    # ...
                                },
                                store => {
                                    class => 'FromSub::Hash',
                                    model_class => 'UserAuth',
                                    id_field => 'user_id',
                                }
                            }
                        }
                    };

    authentication:
      default_realm: 'members'
      password_hash_type: "clear"
      realms:
        members:
          credential:
            class: 'Password'
            password_field: 'password'
            password_type: "hashed"
            password_hash_type: "SHA-1"
          store:
            class: 'FromSub::Hash'
            model_class: "UserAuth"
class

Class is part of the core Catalyst::Authentication::Plugin module, it contains the class name of the store to be used.

user_class

Contains the class name (as passed to $c->model()) of Catalyst. This config item is REQUIRED.

id_field

For restore from session, we pass { $id_field => $c->session->{__user}->{$id_field} } to sub auth, so be sure you deal with this $userinfo in sub auth like

    sub auth { # sub name needs to be 'auth'
        my ($self, $c, $userinfo) = @_;
        
        my $where;
        if (exists $userinfo->{user_id}) { # restore from session (id_field => 'user_id')
            $where = { user_id => $userinfo->{user_id} };
        } elsif (exists $userinfo->{username}) { # from authenticate
            $where = { username => $userinfo->{username} };
        } else { return; }

It is a primary key in the hash return by sub auth. Default is 'user_id'

USAGE ^

The Catalyst::Authentication::Store::FromSub::Hash storage module is not called directly from application code. You interface with it through the $c->authenticate() call.

EXAMPLES ^
