NAME ^

Gantry::Control::C::Groups - Group management for the Gantry library

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Gantry::Control::C::Groups;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module handles all of the group manipulation for the authorization and authentication handlers. It's pretty mundane by itself.

APACHE ^

Sample Apache configuration.

  <Location /admin/groups >
    SetHandler  perl-script

    PerlSetVar  SiteTitle       "Group Management: "

    PerlSetVar  dbconn  "dbi:Pg:dbname=..."
    PerlSetVar  dbuser  "<database_username>"
    PerlSetVar  dbpass  "<database_password>
    PerlSetVar  DatabaseCommit  off
                   
    PerlHandler Gantry::Control::C::Groups
  </Location>

DATABASE ^

These are the group authentication/authorization tables used by this module. They are also used by the authen and authz handlers this package contains.

  create table "auth_users" (
    see C<Gantry::Control::C::User> 
  );
  
  create table "auth_groups" (
    "id"            int4 default nextval('auth_groups_seq'::text) NOT NULL,
    "name"          varchar,
    "description"   text
  );

  create table "auth_group_members" (
    "id"        int4 default nextval('auth_group_members_seq'::text) NOT NULL,
    "user_id"   int4,
    "group_id"  int4    
  );

METHODS ^

The methods are all url mapped handlers called by Gantry::handler, except redirect_to_main which is a Gantry::Plugins::CRUD callback which decides where to go when a button driven action is complete.

do_add
do_ajax_edit
do_delete
do_edit
do_main
do_members
redirect_to_main

There is also one method designed to be called by templates (especially wrappers).

site_links

Returns nav links and their text.

SEE ALSO ^

Gantry::Control::C::Users(3), Gantry::Control(3), Gantry::Control::Users(3), Gantry(3)

LIMITATIONS ^

The group name should be safe for use in the apache configuration files but I am not going to force this down peoples throat as any string can be made safe if escaped correctly.
