NAME

       acl.php - manages Access Control Lists (ACLs) for CakePHP applications

SYNOPSIS

       acl.php <command> <arg1> <arg2> ...

DESCRIPTION

       The acl.php script manages Access Control Lists (ACLs) for CakePHP applications.

OPTIONS

       create aro|aco <link_id> <parent_id> <alias>
              Creates  a  new  ACL  object under the parent specified by <parent_id>, an id/alias
              (see 'view'). The  link_id  allows  you  to  link  a  user  object  to  Cake's  ACL
              structures.  The  alias  parameter  allows  you to address your object using a non-
              integer ID.

              Example: "acl.php create aro 57 0 John" would create a new ARO object at  the  root
              of the tree, linked to 57 in your users table, with an internal alias `John'.

       delete aro|aco <id>
              Deletes the ACL object with the specified ID (see `view').

       setParent aro|aco <id> <parent_id>
              Used  to  set the parent of the ACL object specified by <id> to the ID specified by
              <parent_id>.

       getPath aro|aco <id>
              Returns the path to the ACL object specified by <id>. This command is is useful  in
              determining the inhertiance of permissions for a certain object in the tree.

       grant <aro_id> <aco_id> <aco_action>
              Use  this  command  to grant ACL permissions. Once executed, the ARO specified (and
              its children, if any) will have ALLOW access to the specified ACO action  (and  the
              ACO's children, if any).

       deny <aro_id> <aco_id> <aco_action>
              Use this command to deny ACL permissions. Once executed, the ARO specified (and its
              children, if any) will have DENY access to the specified ACO action (and the  ACO's
              children, if any).

       inherit <aro_id> <aco_id> <aco_action>
              Use  this  command  to force a child ARO object to inherit its permissions settings
              from its parent.

       view aro|aco [id]
              The view command will return the ARO or ACO tree. The optional  id/alias  parameter
              allows you to return only a portion of the requested tree.

       initdb Use this command to create the database tables needed to use DB ACL.

       -app   Absolute path to Cake's app directory

       -core  Absolute path to Cake's cake directory

       -root  Absolute path to Cake's /app/webroot directory

       -datasource
