ZTFY package used to add wrapper around Zope security

Project description

What is ? is a thin wrapper around and zope.securitypolicy packages.

It provides an adapter to ISecurityManager interfaces, which allows you to get and set roles and permissions applied to a given principal on a given adapted context.

This adapter also allows you to fire events when a role is granted or revoked to a given principal ; this functionality can be useful, for example, when you want to forbid removal of a ‘contributor’ role to a principal when he already owns a set of contents.

Finally, provides a small set of schema fields, which can be used when you want to define a field as a principal id or as a list of principals ids.

How to use ? package usage is described via doctests in ztfy/security/doctests/README.txt



  • order principals by title in input and display widgets
