A user authentication and authorization component for the BlazeWeb framework

Project Description



AuthBWC is a component for BlazeWeb applications. It provides users, groups, permissions, related helpers and views. Proper integration of this component will allow applications to have views that can only be accessed by certain users.

Includes email notifications when an account is created as well as an email based password reset mechanism.
