NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::Authorization::Driver::SimpleGroup - Simple Group based Authorization driver

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use base qw(CGI::Application);
 use CGI::Application::Plugin::Authorization;

 __PACKAGE__->authz->config(
       DRIVER => [ SimpleGroup ],
       # You are responsible for setting a group param somehow!
       GET_USERNAME => sub { my $authz = shift; return $authz->cgiapp->session->param(group) },
 );



DESCRIPTION

This driver achieves simplicity by assuming that the username method of CGI::Application::Plugin::Authorization will return a group rather than a username. Thus it can be directly compared with the list of authorized groups passed to authorize

EXAMPLE



 use base qw(CGI::Application);
 use CGI::Application::Plugin::Authorization;

 __PACKAGE__->authz->config(
    DRIVER => [ SimpleGroup ],
    # You are responsible for setting a group param somehow!
    GET_USERNAME => sub {
        my $authz = shift;
        return $authz->cgiapp->session->param(group);
    },
 );

 sub cgiapp_prerun {
    my $self = shift;

    # here is an example of how you could set the
    # group param that will be tested later
    if ($ENV{REMOTE_USER} eq mark) {
        $self->session->param(group => admin);
    }
 }

 sub my_runmode {
    my $self = shift;

    # make sure the user has admin privileges
    return $self->authz->forbidden unless $self->authz->authorize(admin);

    # if we get here the user has admin privileges
 }



METHODS

    authorize_user

This method is not intended to be used directly. Just follow the SYNOPSIS.

This method accepts a username followed by a list of group names and will return true if the user belongs to at least one of the groups.
