How to create a new grants
If you want to add a new grant, you have to do two things:
- Add the grant and enable it in to the BD
- Add the condition
You can see all the grants in the table 'grants_type', to add it automatically on start up the
backend you have to modify the functions ``_add_grants`` and `` _enable_grants`` in the file "lib/"
Now the test file is like this:
sub _add_grants($self) {
# How to
# $self->_add_grant('grant_name', enable/disable by default, "description")
# Examples
$self->_add_grant('shutdown', 1,"Can shutdown own virtual machines");
$self->_add_grant('start_many',0,"Can have more than one machine started")
sub _enable_grants($self) {
my @grants = (
# How to
# 'grant_name'
# Examples
'change_settings', 'change_settings_all', 'change_settings_clones'
,'clone', 'clone_all', 'create_base', 'create_machine'
,'remove', 'remove_all', 'remove_clone', 'remove_clone_all'
,'shutdown', 'shutdown_all', 'shutdown_clone'
Next for adding the conditions it depends of the situations but you may want to lock in to thins functions:
- "templates/main/settings_machine_tabs_head.html.ep" & "templates/main/settings_machine_tabs_head.html.ep" for Virtual Machine edit settings web page.
- "lib/Ravada/Auth/" all the grants conditions created (i.e. ``is_admin``, ``can_list_clones``, etc...).
**Note**:If the function is named ``can_'grant_name'`` this function is automatically generated with the BD data.
Some examples for testing can be found in "/t/user/50_admin.t" and "/t/user/40_grant_shutdown.t" also you may want to read the section **How to create tests**.
