CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::DBIC - DBIx::Class Authentication Driver


Version 0.02


 use base qw(CGI::Application);
 use CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication;
     DRIVER => [ 
        SCHEMA => My::DBIC->connect($dsn), # or existing $schema object
        CLASS => 'Users', # = My::DBIC::Users
        FIELD_METHODS => [qw(user MD5:passphrase)]
     CREDENTIALS => [qw(auth_username auth_password)],


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


The DBIx::Class authentication driver accepts the following required parameters.
SCHEMA (required)
Specifies the DBIx::Class::Schema object to use for authentication. This class must be loaded prior to use.
CLASS (required)
Specifies the DBIx::Class class within the schema which contains authentication information.
FIELD_METHODS (required)
FIELD_METHODS is an arrayref of the methods in the DBIx::Class 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.
