Document overriding @require error handling

Reported by: vinces1979 Owned by: Gustavo
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.0b5
Component: Documentation Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: sprint documentation


The default @require redirects can cause issues in non html applications. (Ex: flex applications)

Example Usage (this will raise a Flex ErrorMessage?):

class AuthFailed(remoting.RemotingError):

add_error_class(AuthFailed, "Auth.Failed")

def flexError(reason):
    msg = remoting.ErrorFault()
    msg.description = reason
    msg.code = "Auth.Failed"
    msg.level = "error"
    return msg.raiseException()

class FlexController:
    @require(authorize.not_anonymous("NOT AUTHED"), flexError)
    def echo(self, data):
        user = ""
        if request.identity:
            user = request.identity['user'].display_name
            log.debug("USER: %s" % user)
        return "Turbogears gateway says: %s %s" % (data, user)

Replying to vinces1979:

A better usage example:

def require(predicate):
    """ wrap TG's default require and override the error handler with a customError """
    @tg_require(predicate, error_handler=customError) #: override tg's default redirect
    def check_auth(func, *args, **kwargs):
        return func(*args, **kwargs)
    return check_auth

Good point, although we'll also need an analogous alternative to controller-wide authorization using the allow_only attribute. What about running a method called, say, "_failed_authorization", if defined and the predicate in allow_only is not met?

comment:4 Changed 11 years ago by vinces1979

Good point I forgot about the allow_only, I am using this in a pyamf application so my Controller handles the allow_only already.

I created a patch for adding _failed_authorization to the _check_security

example Usuage:

from pylons.controllers.util import abort

class Secc(BaseController):
    """Sample controller-wide authorization"""

    # The predicate that must be met for all the actions in this controller:
    allow_only = has_permission('manage',
                                msg=_('Only for people with the "manage" permission'))
    def _failed_authorization(self, *args, **kws):
        log.debug("Custom Error Called %s %s" % (args, kws))
        abort("500", "Not Found")
