Code Howto: Create a permission

Starting in Tiki8, look at the function get_raw_permissions in lib/userslib.php


The permission list in Tiki is stored in the database. To create a new permission requires the same steps as a Database Schema Upgrade.

Essentially, it requires to insert a new row in the users_permissions table. It must be done in both the db/tiki.sql file and in a database patch file.

Sample permission creation
INSERT INTO `users_permissions` (`permName`, `permDesc`, `level`, `type`, `admin`, `feature_check`) VALUES('tiki_p_wiki_view_source', 'Can view source of wiki pages', 'basic', 'wiki', NULL, 'feature_source');


The relevant fields are:

permName
The permission name beginning with the tiki_p_ prefix
permDesc
A short description of what the permission does
level
A group for the permission to be used by quick permission admin. Default available groups are basic, registered, editors and admin.
type
The section to which the permission applies. Used by the admin field to grant permission to child permissions.
admin
If the permission grants rights to all other permissions of the same type.
feature_check
Features on which the permission depends. If the features are not enabled, the permission will not be listed in the user interfaces.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
