Joshua Thijssen's Blog:
Symfony2 Implementing ACL rules in your Data Fixtures
July 04, 2012 @ 16:33:23

Joshua Thijssen has a new post to his blog looking at a method for setting up ACL rules in fixtures for your Symfony2-based applications.

Doctrine's DataFixtures are a great way to add test data to your application. It's fairly easy to get this going: Create a fixureLoader that extends DoctrineCommonDataFixturesAbstractFixture, had a load() method and off you go. However, sometimes you want your data also to be protected by Symfony 2′s ACL layer. Since there isn't a common way to do this, here is one way on how I implemented this.

His method uses the ContainerAware interface on the fixture loader instance to be able to get at the container for the fixture. This allows you to use the usual ACL handling methods of the framework to provide restrictions based on things like usernames and roles.
