Userbase Role Provider Bundle

Use this bundle to add Roles to Users loaded by the UserProvider.

Userbase does not provide Role information about its users so apps need to supply their own. This bundle allows you to define fixed roles for your users and these will be incorporated into the User objects loaded by the Userbase UserProvider.

Define the fixed roles in a Yaml file at config/roles.yaml:-

my-username: [ROLE_ADMIN]
some-other-username: [ROLE_USER]

Next, clear the app cache so that the roles are baked into the service container configuration. And that's it! You can now restrict access to resources based on these roles.

The bundle will load roles from the roles.yaml file without any further configuration. It can instead be made to load roles from the environment. Populating a service parameter named userbase.roles is the key to this alternative configuration:

# add to a .env file

# add to config/services.yaml
  userbase.roles: '%env(json:USERBASE_ROLES)%'

# add to config/packages/userbase.yaml
    from_files: false

The change to userbase.yaml will require that the app cache is cleared. Then the roles will be loaded from the USERBASE_ROLES environment variable at the start of every request.


Note: this feature requires version 1.7 or later of the userbase/client package. You may need to begin installation by issuing:-

$ composer require "linkorb/userbase-client ^1.7"
