Subject [MP2]: setting group for a request (require group ...)
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 12:53:17 GMT
Hello all,

I am writing a mod_perl authentication module (My::Auth).

This module sets the user using the Apache2::RequestRec::user method.

package My::Auth;
sub {
 ....
 $r->user('getting the user in my module internal structure');
 return OK;
}

In the Apache configuration file, I can use the configuration

<Location /test_user>
PerlAuthHandler  My::Auth
Require user user1
....
</Location>

I would like to use my module in another configuration where group is
checked

<Location /test_group>
PerlAuthHandler  My::Auth
Require group group1
....
</Location>

I can not find any mod_perl API method (Apache2::RequestRec::group ?) to set
the group. I only found Apache2::RequestRec::require method, but this method
only read the require configuration.

One way to solve the problem is the modify the My::Auth::handler method :

package My::Auth;
sub {
 ....
 $r->user('getting the user in my module internal structure');
 my $requires = $r->requires;

 # here the code to verify authorization

 return OK;
}

but I think this is a workaround:
 . My::Auth::handler is an AUTHENTICATION handler
 . the code to verify the AUTHORIZATION should have to be executed by the
httpd core.

How can I manage authorization in this case ?

Thanks
