NAME ^

Gantry::Control::C::AuthzCDBI - Database based authorization for Class::DBI.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Gantry::Control::C::AuthzCDBI qw/-Engine=MP20/;

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a simple database driven autorization system for use with apps which rely on Class::DBI (or one of its descendents). If you use a different ORM, you probably want Gantry::Control::C::AuthzRegular instead of this module. This module also details the other Authz modules in the library.

METHODS ^

user_model

Returns Gantry::Control::Model::auth_users_cdbi. If you want something else, try Gantry::Control::C::AuthenRegular or make your own Gantry::Control::C::AuthzBase subclass.

group_members_model

Returns Gantry::Control::Model::group_members_cdbi. If you want something else, try Gantry::Control::C::AuthzRegular or make your own Gantry::Control::C::AuthzBase subclass.

APACHE ^

Sample Apache conf configuration.

  <Perl>
     use Gantry::Control::C::AuthzCDBI qw/-Engine=MP20/;
  </Perl>
  
  <Location /location/to/auth >
    AuthType    Basic
    AuthName    "Manual"

    PerlSetVar  auth_dbconn     'dbi:Pg:dbname=...'
    PerlSetVar  auth_dbuser     '<database_user>'
    PerlSetVar  auth_dbpass     '<database_password>'
    
    PerlSetVar  auth_dbcommit   off

    PerlAuthzHandler  Gantry::Control::C::AuthzCDBI

    require     group "group_to_require"
  </Location>

DATABASE ^

These are the tables that will be queried for the authorization of the user.

  create table "auth_users" (
    "id"            int4 default nextval('auth_users_seq') NOT NULL,
    "user_id"       int4,
    "active"        bool,
    "user_name"     varchar,
    "passwd"        varchar,
    "crypt"         varchar,
    "first_name"    varchar,
    "last_name"     varchar,
    "email"         varchar
  );

  create table "auth_groups" (
    "id"            int4 default nextval('auth_groups_seq') NOT NULL,
    "ident"         varchar,
    "name"          varchar,
    "description"   text
  );

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

  create table "auth_pages" (
    "id"          int4 default nextval('auth_pages_seq') NOT NULL,
    "user_perm"   int4,
    "group_perm"  int4,
    "owner_id"    int4,
    "group_id"    int4,
    "uri"         varchar,
    "title"       varchar
  );

MODULES ^

Gantry::Control::C::AuthzCDBI::PageBased

It is controlled by Gantry::Control::C::Pages(3) and will authenticate only users who have been allowed from the administrative interface into a particular uri. The module returns FORBIDDEN if you do not have access to a particular uri.

METHODS ^
