NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::RDBO - Authentication and authorization against a Rose::DB::Object model.

VERSION

This document describes Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::RDBO version 0.002.

SYNOPSIS

    use Catalyst;

    __PACKAGE__->setup(
        qw(
           Authentication
           Authentication::Store::DBIC
           Authentication::Credential::Password
           Authorization::Roles
          )
    );

    # Authentication
    __PACKAGE__->config->{authentication}{rdbo} = {
        user_class         => 'User',     # or 'MyApp::Model::User'
        user_field         => 'username',
        password_field     => 'password',
        password_type      => 'hashed',   # or 'clear'
        password_hash_type => 'SHA-1',
    };

    # Authorization
    __PACKAGE__->config->{authorization}{rdbo} = {
        role_rel   => 'roles',  # name of the many-to-many relationship
        role_field => 'name',
    };

DESCRIPTION

This plugin uses a Rose::DB::Object object to authenticate an user. It is based on Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::DBIC. Please read there for a much better description.

DIFFERENCES

Currently only a single field for the user_field parameter is supported. The DBIC plugin supports also an array reference. This can be added in a future version.

The default for user_field is username instead of user.

The configuration for authorization is much simpler, only two parameters are needed. role_rel specifies the name of the many-to-many relationship which connects user and role names. role_field is the column accessor for the role name. (For Catalyst::Plugin::Authorization::Roles roles are just strings.)
