I been playing with Silex for the past few weeks and I'm about to start a major stepping stone. Authentication has always caused me some trouble.
I been looking at documentations / examples for the past few days and I can't seem to find any answers to what I am seeking.
I can tell Silex supports ROLE_ADMIN and ROLE_USER but I don't see any ROLE_SUPER_ADMIN. Is it possible to modify the user provider/interface to handle this extra role and if so where could I find the proper documentation for it.
I believe that roles are "mostly" arbitrary in that you can define whatever role you want (like:
ROLE_AWESOME_USER, etc...) but
ROLE_ADMIN seem to be referenced in Symfony tests as well as the core
Here is my default firewall config at current:
'security.firewalls' => array( 'main' => array( 'pattern' => '^/', 'anonymous' => true, 'form' => array( 'login_path' => '/login', 'check_path' => '/login_check', 'username_parameter' => 'form[username]', 'password_parameter' => 'form[password]', 'form_login' => array( 'csrf_provider' => 'form.csrf_provider', ), ), 'logout' => array('logout_path' => '/logout'), 'users' => array( 'username' => array( '%security.role%', '%security.password%', ), ), ), ), 'security.role_hierarchy' => array( 'ROLE_USER' => array(), 'ROLE_ADMIN' => array('ROLE_USER'), 'ROLE_SUPER_ADMIN' => array('ROLE_USER','ROLE_ADMIN','ROLE_ALLOWED_TO_SWITCH'), ), 'security.access_rules' => array( array('^/user', 'ROLE_USER'), array('^/admin', 'ROLE_ADMIN'), array('^/root', 'ROLE_SUPER_ADMIN'), ),
