To set up ACL in Phalcon, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Class that extends PhalconAclAdapterMemory:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18

21
use PhalconAclAdapterMemory as AclMemory;

class Acl extends AclMemory
{
    public function __construct()
    {
        parent::__construct();

        // Define the roles
        $this->addRole(new PhalconAclRole('user'));
        $this->addRole(new PhalconAclRole('admin'));

        // Define the resources
        $this->addResource(new PhalconAclResource('index'));
        $this->addResource(new PhalconAclResource('adminIndex'));

        // Set access for resources
        $this->allow('user', 'index', 'index');
        $this->allow('admin', 'adminIndex', 'index');
    }
}


  1. Create an instance of the new Acl Class and set it to be used in your application:
1
2
3
$di->set('acl', function () {
    return new Acl();
});


  1. Define the access control for your application by using the acl instance:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8

10
11
12
13

15
$di->set('dispatcher', function () use ($di) {
    $dispatcher = new PhalconMvcDispatcher();
    $dispatcher->setEventsManager($di->getShared('eventsManager'));

    $acl = $di->getShared('acl');

    // Set up access control for the entire application
    $dispatcher->setActionSuffix('');

    $dispatcher->setParam('acl', $acl);

    $dispatcher->setParam('namespace', 'AppControllers');

    return $dispatcher;
});


Now, you have set up access control for your Phalcon application using ACL. In this example, we have defined two roles - 'user' and 'admin', and two resources - 'index' and 'adminIndex'. We have also set up access control to allow the 'user' role to access the 'index' resource and the 'admin' role to access the 'adminIndex' resource.
