NAME ^

Dancer::Plugin::Authorize::Credentials::PostgreSQL - Dancer::Plugin::Authorize authentication via PostgreSQL!

VERSION ^

version 1.110720

SYNOPSIS ^

    # in your app code
    my $auth = auth($login, $password);
    if ($auth) {
        # login successful
    }
    
    # use your own encryption (if the user account password is encrypted)
    my $auth = auth($login, encrypt($password));
    if ($auth) {
        # login successful
    }

DESCRIPTION ^

Dancer::Plugin::Authorize::Credentials::PostgreSQL uses your PostgreSQL database connection as the application's user management system.

METHODS ^

authorize

The authorize method (found in every authentication class) validates a user against the defined datastore using the supplied arguments and configuration file options.

CONFIGURATION ^

    plugins:
      Database:
        driver: 'Pg'
        database: 'test'
        username: 'root'
        password: '****'
      Authorize:
        credentials:
          class: PostgreSQL

Sometime you might define multiple connections for the Database plugin, make sure you tell the Authorize plugin about it... e.g.

    plugins:
      Database:
        foo:
          driver: 'sqlite'
          database: 'example1.db'
        bar:
          driver: 'Pg'
          database: 'test'
          username: 'root'
          password: '****'
      Authorize:
        credentials:
          class: PostgreSQL
          options:
            handle: bar

Please see Dancer::Plugin::Database for a list of all available connection options and arguments.

DATABASE SETUP ^

    # users table (feel free to add more columns as you see fit)
    
    CREATE TABLE "users" (
    "id" SERIAL NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
    "name" TEXT,
    "login" TEXT NOT NULL,
    "password" TEXT NOT NULL,
    "roles" TEXT
    );
    
    # create an initial adminstrative user (should probably encrypt the password)
    # Note! this module is not responsible for creating user accounts, it simply
    # provides a consistant authentication framework
    
    INSERT INTO users (name, login, password, roles)
    VALUES ('Administrator', 'admin', '*****', 'guest, user, admin');
