Role based navigation to resouce

@kapa.ai , I want to have a role based navigation when a user login. For example, If a user has role of admin, then the resource will be users and if the user has role of endUser then the resouce will be posts. I am also providing you with my router code below. <Routes> <Route element={ <Authenticated fallback={<CatchAllNavigate to="/login" />}> <ThemedLayoutV2 Sider={() => <CustomSider />} Header={() => <Header sticky />} > <Outlet /> </ThemedLayoutV2> </Authenticated> } > <Route path="/users"> <Route path="list" index element={<UserList />} /> </Route> <Route path="/posts"> <Route path="list" index element={<PostsList />} /> </Route> <Route path="*" element={<ErrorComponent />} /> </Route> <Route element={ <Authenticated fallback={<Outlet />}> <NavigateToResource resource="users" /> </Authenticated> } > <Route path="/login" element={<Login />} /> <Route path="/forgot-password" element={<ForgotPassword />} /> </Route> </Routes>

Hi @jenish7822. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To implement role-based navigation, you can use the accessControlProvider prop in the Refine component. You can define different roles and their permissions, and then conditionally render the navigation based on the user's role. Here's an example of how you can modify your code to achieve this: 1. First, set up the accessControlProvider in your Refine component. You can use the example from the Access Control documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/access-control):
import { newEnforcer } from "casbin";
import { model, adapter } from "./casbin";

// ...

const App = () => {
const [role, setRole] = useState("admin");

return (
<BrowserRouter>
<Refine
accessControlProvider={{
can: async ({ resource, action }) => {
const enforcer = await newEnforcer(model, adapter);
const can = await enforcer.enforce(role, resource, action);

return {
can,
};
},
}}
// ...
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
</BrowserRouter>
);
};
import { newEnforcer } from "casbin";
import { model, adapter } from "./casbin";

// ...

const App = () => {
const [role, setRole] = useState("admin");

return (
<BrowserRouter>
<Refine
accessControlProvider={{
can: async ({ resource, action }) => {
const enforcer = await newEnforcer(model, adapter);
const can = await enforcer.enforce(role, resource, action);

return {
can,
};
},
}}
// ...
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
</BrowserRouter>
);
};
2. Modify your Routes to conditionally render the navigation based on the user's role:
<Routes>
{role === "admin" && (
<Route path="/users">
<Route path="list" index element={<UserList />} />
</Route>
)}
{role === "endUser" && (
<Route path="/posts">
<Route path="list" index element={<PostsList />} />
</Route>
)}
<Route path="*" element={<ErrorComponent />} />
</Route>
<Route
element={
<Authenticated fallback={<Outlet />}>
<NavigateToResource resource={role === "admin" ? "users" : "posts"} />
</Authenticated>
}
>
<Route path="/login" element={<Login />} />
<Route path="/forgot-password" element={<ForgotPassword />} />
</Route>
</Routes>
<Routes>
{role === "admin" && (
<Route path="/users">
<Route path="list" index element={<UserList />} />
</Route>
)}
{role === "endUser" && (
<Route path="/posts">
<Route path="list" index element={<PostsList />} />
</Route>
)}
<Route path="*" element={<ErrorComponent />} />
</Route>
<Route
element={
<Authenticated fallback={<Outlet />}>
<NavigateToResource resource={role === "admin" ? "users" : "posts"} />
</Authenticated>
}
>
<Route path="/login" element={<Login />} />
<Route path="/forgot-password" element={<ForgotPassword />} />
</Route>
</Routes>
In this example, the navigation will render the /users route for users with the "admin" role and the /posts route for users with the "endUser" role. Make sure to replace the role state with the actual role of the authenticated user. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai this is not working.

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I apologize for the confusion. Based on the information provided in the extracts, I cannot provide a direct solution to your specific use case. However, I can still guide you on how to implement role-based navigation using refine. You can follow these steps: 1. Set up the authProvider to fetch user roles. You can refer to the Supabase Custom Claims example (https://refine.dev/blog/refine-pixels-6) for guidance on how to set up user roles and fetch them using the getPermissions() method. 2. Use the useCan hook or the <CanAccess /> component to conditionally render the navigation based on the user's role. You can find more information about these in the Access Control documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/access-control). Unfortunately, without more information about your specific implementation, I cannot provide a more detailed solution. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to ask. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hello @jenish7822 do you want to conditionally render different homepages depends on the user's cole?
evident-indigo
evident-indigo12mo ago
@batuhanw yes, after the user signs in, based on user role, the user should get its page.. let's say a user has role of QA then the qa page will be shown and if the role is admin then the admin page will be shown.

Hello @jenish7822 so I think you can handle it in auth provider's login method. https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/auth-provider/#methods From login method of auth provider, you can return this object:
{ success: true, redirectTo: "/"
{ success: true, redirectTo: "/"
I think once user logged in, you can check user's role and return different redirectTo value depends on the role, would that help with your issue?
Auth Provider | refine
Auth provider is an object that contains methods to handle authentication and access control in your app by having refine consume them. These methods expect to return a promise, so they can be used with async methods.

@batuhanw ,yeah I tried to implement it but it wasn't working, means the redirection wasn't working. @batuhanw , so i implemented another way, there is one component navigateToResource in refine react router. i tried to replicate it and made my own custom navigateToResource. what i did was, first fetched the role from localstorage and then based on roles i was assigning the resource to each role Refine team should make that a functionality in their navigateToResource. they should give option to navigate to based on roles.

I think you can also just modify NavigateToResrouce component's prop depends on the role, some pseudo code
const role = useLocalStorage()

const resourceToNavigate = role === "QA" ? "products" : "posts"

....

<Refine ...>

<NavigateToResource resource={resourceToNavigate} />
const role = useLocalStorage()

const resourceToNavigate = role === "QA" ? "products" : "posts"

....

<Refine ...>

<NavigateToResource resource={resourceToNavigate} />

@batuhanw , i think refine will do the route first and then it will read this role from localstorage. Let me try this one, if it works i will share the result here. Thanks

It might be true, yeah, I think using redirectTo in auth provider is a better solution. If you can provide a minimal reproducible example about problem with redirect, we'd be happy to help

Hi @batuhanw , that redirecting the user based on role from the login method itself worked for me.

Hey @jenish7822 That's great to hear!

also if anybody is using outlet or navigateToResource for the route of login, then you should remove it, as it will have no use there. simply put the route as: <Route // No Outlet or NavigateToResource here > <Route path="/login" element={<Login />} /> <Route path="/forgot-password" element={<ForgotPassword />} /> // any other login/signup routes, that you might need.. </Route> thanks for the help mate!
