Simple Example

import (


func main() {
    mux := http.NewServeMux()
    mux.HandleFunc("/", func(w http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {
        fmt.Fprintf(w, "Welcome to the home page!")

    n := negroni.Classic()

    // load the casbin model and policy from files, database is also supported.
    e := casbin.NewEnforcer("authz_model.conf", "authz_policy.csv")

    http.ListenAndServe(":3000", n)

How to control the access

The authorization determines a request based on {subject, object, action}, which means what subject can perform what action on what object. In this plugin, the meanings are:

  1. subject: the logged-on user name
  2. object: the URL path for the web resource like "dataset1/item1"
  3. action: HTTP method like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, or the high-level actions you defined like "read-file", "write-blog"

For how to write authorization policy and other details, please refer to the Casbin's documentation.
