Using Role Property In Accessrules


Recommended Posts

I've been following this tutorial, which is great btw, and have one question.



I can access the role property like this, anywhere in my application code:



but, what I'd really like to do is use the default controller authorization in my UserController:

 * Specifies the access control rules.
 * This method is used by the 'accessControl' filter.
 * @return array access control rules
public function accessRules()
 return array(
  array('allow',  // allow all users to perform 'index' and 'view' actions
					    // Fails
					    // Also Fails
						    'expression'=>'(isset(Yii::app()->user->role) && (Yii::app()->user->role==ModelConstantsRole::ADMIN))',
  array('deny',  // deny all users


It appears that the class that actually validates the rules defined in accessRules doesn't actually know anything about my role that I've assigned it.

CAccessControlFilter (for those of you who don't want to search for it for 40 minutes XD).


Any ideas on how I can make use of the accessRules method when I combine it with Larry's approach?
