Setting up a simple working example of Acl & Navigation in Zend Framework 1.9.x as demonstrated by jscherer26.
Enjoy

models/Acl.php

< ?php class Model_Acl extends Zend_Acl { public function __construct() { // define Roles $this->addRole(new Zend_Acl_Role('guest')); // not authenicated
$this->addRole(new Zend_Acl_Role('member'), 'guest'); // authenticated as member inherit guest privilages
$this->addRole(new Zend_Acl_Role('admin'), 'member'); // authenticated as admin inherit member privilages

// define Resources
$this->add(new Zend_Acl_Resource('error'));
$this->add(new Zend_Acl_Resource('index'));
$this->add(new Zend_Acl_Resource('authentication'));
$this->add(new Zend_Acl_Resource('activity'));

// assign privileges
$this->allow('guest', array('index','error'));
$this->allow('guest', 'authentication', array('index','signin'));

$this->allow('member', 'authentication', array('index','signout'));
$this->deny( 'member', 'authentication', 'signin');
$this->allow('member', 'activity', array('index','list')); // member has list privilages for resource activity

$this->allow('admin', 'activity'); // admin has all privileges for resource activity
}
}

plugins/Authenticated.php

< ?php class Plugin_Authenticated extends Zend_Controller_Plugin_Abstract { private $_acl = null; private $_auth = null; public function __construct(Zend_Acl $acl, Zend_Auth $auth) { $this->_acl = $acl;
$this->_auth = $auth;
}

public function preDispatch(Zend_Controller_Request_Abstract $request)
{
$resource = $request->getControllerName();
$action = $request->getActionName();

$role .= $this->_auth->getStorage()->read()->role;
if(!$this->_acl->isAllowed($role, $resource, $action)) {
$request->setControllerName('authentication')
->setActionName('notauthorized');
}
}
}

Bootstrap.php

< ?php class Bootstrap extends Zend_Application_Bootstrap_Bootstrap { private $_acl = null; private $_auth = null; protected function _initAutoload() { $modelLoader = new Zend_Application_Module_Autoloader(array( 'namespace' => '',
'basePath' => APPLICATION_PATH));

$fc->registerPlugin(new Plugin_Authenticated($this->_acl, $this->_auth));

return $modelLoader;
}

->appendStylesheet($config->head->css->form)
->appendStylesheet($config->head->css->view);

$view->headTitle()->setSeparator(' - ');
$view->headTitle($config->head->title);

}

function _initNavigation()
{
$this->bootstrap('layout');
$layout = $this->getResource('layout');
$view = $layout->getView();

$navConfig = new Zend_Config_Xml(APPLICATION_PATH . '/configs/navigation.xml', 'nav');
$navigation = new Zend_Navigation($navConfig);

$view->navigation($navigation)->setAcl($this->_acl)
->setRole($this->_auth->getStorage()->read()->role);

}

}

    I am using Zend 1.8.3

    And got this error “Fatal error: Zend_Acl_Role_Registry_Exception: Role ‘user’ not found in /usr/local/lib/Zend/View/Helper/Navigation/HelperAbstract.php on line 488”

    Any clue where I did wrong?

  2. For me as a Newbie it seems just another 2 hours spend trying out with a tutorial which doesn’t works.

    Buts thanks anyway.
