sfActionCredentialsGetterPlugin is a simple symfony plugin to enable you to get the required credentials for a given module name and action name, and to determine whether the action is secure.

The plugin provides a single class, sfActionCredentialsGetter, which allows you to query a module name and action name to determine whether the action is secure, and if so, to get the list of credentials required to execute the action.

Developed on/for symfony 1.4.1 with Doctrine ORM. Should also work fine with Propel.


  • Install the plugin. Using symfony command line: ./symfony plugin:install sfActionCredentialsGetterPlugin Or get the latest version from the subversion repository: svn co http://svn.symfony-project.com/plugins/sfActionCredentialsGetterPlugin plugins/sfActionCredentialsGetterPlugin

  • If you installed by subversion, activate the plugin in the config/ProjectConfiguration.class.php file (this will have already been done automatically if you used the plugin:install symfony command).

    class ProjectConfiguration extends sfProjectConfiguration
      public function setup()

How to use

  • Put something like this in the controller code for your module or action:

    public function executeMyAction(sfWebRequest $request) {
        $user = $this->getUser();
        $credentialsGetter = new sfActionCredentialsGetter($this->getContext());
        // Determine whether the user has access to the "blah" action in the "duh" module.
        $module = 'duh';
        $action = 'blah';
        if ($credentialsGetter->isUserAllowedToExecuteAction($user, $module, $action)) {
            // (put code here to emit the link to the action)
  • To determine whether an action is secure:

    $actionIsSecure = $credentialsGetter->isActionSecure($module, $action);
  • To get the list of required credentials for a secure action:

    $requiredCredentials = $credentialsGetter->getActionCredentials($module, $action);
