  • Define authManager component in main config components section, you'll need some i18n settings too (example):
    'components' => [
        'authManager'   => [
            'class' => '\yii\rbac\DbManager'
        'i18n' => [ // this example only if you don't have i18n defined in any other way.
            'translations' => [
                '*' => [
                    'class' => 'yii\i18n\PhpMessageSource',
  • Include 'rbac' module in modules config section:
    'modules' => [
        'rbac'   => [
            'class' => 'bariew\rbacModule\Module'
  • Apply migrations from module migrations folder. E.g. you may copy those migrations to your application migrations folder and run common yii console migration command.

  • Go to rbac/auth-item/index URL and create some roles and permissions, using menu tree with right mouse button.

  • Use AuthItem::checkAccess() for beforeAction events and ViewAccess::afterRender() for afterRender event. You may also use Yii::$app->authManager in common way.
