Option 1:

How to equip your active record model with access control

  • Use update migration in db/migrations/m160609_090908_add_access_columns

    • set all $tableNames to be updated and run migration

This migrations adds the available access check columns to your database table(s)

  • Add use \dmstr\activeRecordPermissions\ActiveRecordAccessTrait; to your active record model

  • (update your cruds)

RBAC permissions

Permissions for selections

  • access.availableDomains:any

Permissions to set default values

  • access.defaults.accessDomain:global
  • access.defaults.updateDelete:<ROLE>

Add rule for default value in Model::rules(), if you want to set it automatically

    'value' => self::getDefaultAccessUpdateDelete()

Option 2:

Simply override this method in our AR model and set the access fields you have/want to the field names you have/want!


public static function accessColumnAttributes()
   return [
       'owner'  => 'access_owner',
       'read'   => 'access_read',
       'update' => 'access_update',
       'delete' => 'access_delete',
       'domain' => 'access_domain',


public static function accessColumnAttributes()
    return [
        'owner'  => 'user_id',			// the column name with owner permissions
        'read'   => 'read_permission',	// the column name with read permissions
        'update' => false, 				// will do no access checks for update
        'delete' => false, 				// will do no access checks for delete
        'domain' => 'language',			// the column name with the access domain permission

㊙️ Congrats, you are now ready to manage specific access checks on your active records!

💡 Access options:

  • All access option *

  • specific rbac roles and permissions assignable

    • single or multi
      • *
      • Role1,Role2,Permission1,...
  • limit access to specific domain / language

    • de or en
  • Owner gets all access over other given permissions

    • every active record can have exact one owner right which stands above access_read, access_update, access_delete

Planned updates:

  • ActiveRecordAccessTrait
    • in cruds use select2 multi for inputs (domain, read, update, delete)
      • Setter: authItemArrayToString()
      • Getter: authItemStringToArray()
