  1. Documentation
  2. Change Log

Srbac is a module that adds a graphic web interface for the administration of Yii rbac It uses the CDbAuthManager so it needs a database (MySQL and SQlite are tested) In this first alpha version you can do: Create, update and delete Auth items (roles, tasks, operations) Assign operations to tasks, tasks to roles and roles to users. After version 1.0.2 you can automatically create operations/task for you controllers' actions and use them without modifying your controllers' code just by extending SBaseController in your controllers. Also srbac supports nested modules and nested controllers (v1.1)
