Assign a group to user based on an expression.

Project description

Introduction

The plugin creates a virtual group and helps to assign this group to users by evaluation of a TALES expression.

Installation

Buildout

See docs/INSTALL.txt

Plone Site

  • Go in the site acl_users then add “Group Assigner”
  • Set the properties: group id, group title and the condition (see below for the meaning of ‘debug’)
  • Activate all the functionalities provided by the plugin

Notes

The expression is based only on principal methods and attributes. It is not possible to assign the group on context base.

Variable available are:

principal portal nothing modules

From ‘principal’ you can use the ‘getProperty’ method to use in your expression. For example:

python: principal.getProperty(‘email’).split(‘@’)[-1] in [‘reflab.com’,]

To assign more than one group you have to add one plugin for each group.

To cache the plugin add a RAMCache manager and assign the plugin to him. If the plugin is cached remember to invalidate the cache when changing properties.

You can activate the ‘debug’ properties to log the evaluation of the expression (in this case don’t use cache).

Tests for pas.plugins.groupassigner

Test setup

>>> from Testing.ZopeTestCase import user_password
>>> from Products.Five.testbrowser import Browser
>>> browser = Browser()

Plugin setup

>>> acl_users_url = "%s/acl_users" % self.portal.absolute_url()
>>> browser.addHeader('Authorization', 'Basic %s:%s' % ('portal_owner', user_password))
>>> self.portal.acl_users.userFolderAddUser('test_user_2_', 'secret', ['Member'], [])
>>> u1 = self.portal.acl_users.getUserById('test_user_1_')
>>> gtool = self.portal.portal_groups
>>> gtool.addGroup('group1', ())
True

pas.plugins.groupassigner should be in the list of installable plugins:

>>> browser.open("%s/manage_main" % acl_users_url)
>>> browser.url
'http://nohost/plone/acl_users/manage_main'
>>> form = browser.getForm(index=0)
>>> select = form.getControl(name=':action')
>>> 'Group Assigner' in select.displayOptions
True

and we can select it:

>>> select.getControl('Group Assigner').click()
>>> select.displayValue
['Group Assigner']
>>> select.value
['manage_addProduct/pas.plugins.groupassigner/manage_add_groupassigner_form']

we add ‘Group Assigner’ to acl_users:

>>> from pas.plugins.groupassigner.plugin import GroupAssigner
>>> assigner = GroupAssigner('group_assigner_test', 'Group Assigner')
>>> assigner.group = 'group1'
>>> assigner.condition = "python: 'reflab.com' in principal.getProperty('email')"
>>> self.portal.acl_users['group_assigner_test'] = assigner
>>> assigner = self.portal.acl_users['group_assigner_test']

Now the tests:

>>> assigner.getGroupsForPrincipal(u1)
()
>>> assigner.getGroupMembers('group1')
()
>>> u1.setProperties(email='u1@reflab.com')
>>> assigner.getGroupsForPrincipal(u1)
('group1',)
>>> assigner.getGroupMembers('group1')
()
>>> assigner.enumerateGroups()
[{'pluginid': 'group_assigner_test', 'title': 'Group Assigner', 'id': 'group1', 'groupid': 'group1'}]
>>> assigner.enumerateGroups(id='group1')
[{'pluginid': 'group_assigner_test', 'title': 'Group Assigner', 'id': 'group1', 'groupid': 'group1'}]
>>> assigner.enumerateGroups(id='groupX')
[]
