ACL, actions and user groups.

Postby diego88 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 1:16 pm

Hi,
I'm developing an extension for joomla 1.6 but I have some problems.
I need to add new user groups and new actions during installation of my component. I think I can do that with some statements in a XML installation file but I can't find any information about this.
I saw action.xml file but I can't understand what I can do with this file.

Can you help me?


thanks in advance!

You need to define the permission types in access.xml and you need to implement that in your view.html.php on every view.

I read that page and I tried to create an access.xml in my component but seems not work.

this is my access.xml:

Code: Select all

 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<access component="com_area_strumentale">
        <section name="component">
                <action name="com_area_strumentale.mantainer" title="JACTION_MNT" description="JACTION_MNT_COMPONENT_DESC" />
        </section>
</access>


I can't understand why this action is not in joomla ACL manager after component installation.
Can you help me?

Have you created the config.xml file for your component? Refer the same page and create a config.xml.

Once you include the rules inside your config.xml you need show the parameters icon in the view.html.php

JToolBarHelper::preferences('com_helloworld');

You can see the component preferences where you can set the access permission.

Once you define the permission you need to use JAccess/getActions to determine the permissions for the current user
