CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::CDBI - Class::DBI Authentication Driver


Version 0.02


  use base qw(CGI::Application);
  use CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication;
    DRIVER => [ 'CDBI',
      CLASS   => 'My::CDBI::Users',
      FIELD_METHODS => [qw(user MD5:passphrase)]
    CREDENTIALS => [qw(auth_username auth_password)],


This Authentication driver uses the Class::DBI module to allow you to authenticate against any Class::DBI class.


The Class::DBI authentication driver accepts the following required parameters.

CLASS (required)

Specifies the Class::DBI class to use for authentication. This class must be loaded prior to use.

FIELD_METHODS (required)

FIELD_METHODS is an arrayref of the methods in the Class::DBI class specified by CLASS to be used during authentication. The order of these methods needs to match the order of the CREDENTIALS. For example, if CREDENTIALS is set to:
  CREDENTIALS => [qw(auth_user auth_domain auth_password)]
Then FIELD_METHODS must be set to:
  FIELD_METHODS => [qw(userid domain password)]
FIELD_METHODS supports filters as specified by CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver



This method will test the provided credentials against the values found in the database, according to the Driver configuration.
