Rights is one of user interface for Yii's Role Base Access Control extension. It is one of most downloaded extensions in Yii's Web.
Sometime developers might encounter errors or incomprehensive messages from Rights while implementing it. While there is a thread dedicated to solve the Rights problems, but because it already grown to big, I decide to collect common problems with their solutions into one wiki so it will be easier for everyone to check.
'rights'=>array( 'userClass' => 'AnotherName', ),
Need to change the table name for the sake of consistency
Add the code to 'authManager' in the Yii configuration files:
'authManager' => array( 'class' => 'RDbAuthManager', 'assignmentTable' => 'authassignment', 'itemTable' => 'authitem', 'itemChildTable' => 'authitemchild', 'rightsTable' => 'rights', ),
Got message: Filter "rights" is invalid. Controller "XyzController" does not have the filter method "filterrights"."
You must extend the controller class from RController. The easiest way is change the code at /protected/components/Controller.php
class Controller extends RController
Got message: "Property "CWebApplication.rights" is not defined."
It seems you have forgot to include "rights" in the Yii's module configuration. Please consult to documentation.
The Guest seems like not working.
Add following setting to the Yii configuration file:
'authManager' => array( 'class'=>'RDbAuthManager', 'defaultRoles'=>array('Guest'), ),
