NAME ^

Gantry::Control::C::Users - User Management

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Gantry::Control::C::Users;

DESCRIPTION ^

This Handler manages users in the database to facilitate the use of that information for authentication, autorization, and use in applications. This replaces the use of htpasswd for user management and puts more information at the finger tips of the application.

APACHE ^

  <Location /admin/users >
    SetHandler  perl-script

    PerlSetVar  title   "User Management: "

    PerlSetVar  dbconn  "dbi:Pg:dbname=..."
    PerlSetVar  dbuser  "<database_username>"
    PerlSetVar  dbpass  "<database_password>"
    PerlSetVar  dbcommit  off

    PerlHandler Gantry::Control::C::Users
  </Location>

DATABASE ^

This is the auth_users table that is used by this module. It is also used by the Authentication modules to verify usernames and passwords. The passwords are ecrypted by the crypt(3) function in perl.

  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
  );

METHODS ^

Most of the methods are mapped to urls.

do_delete
do_edit
do_main
redirect_to_main

Gantry::Control(3), Gantry(3)

LIMITATIONS ^

The passwords for users are enrypted so they can not be seen at all. In some situations this could be a very big problem.
