Hi @desithharra. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, refine allows you to implement role-based access control for resources. This means you can define different access rules for different user roles, making the resources dynamic according to the user role. For example, you can define rules such as: - Users with an "admin" role can access everywhere. - Users with an "editor" role can only edit or delete specific content if they are the owner of the resource. You can define these rules using the accessControlProvider prop in the <Refine> component. This prop accepts an object with a can method, which is used to control whether the requested access is granted. This method takes resource and action as parameters. Here is an example of how you can implement this:
<Refine
accessControlProvider={{
can: async ({ resource, action }) => {
const enforcer = await newEnforcer(model, adapter);
const can = await enforcer.enforce(
role,
resource,
action,
);

return {
can,
};
},
}}
//...
>
<Routes>
<Route
element={
<ThemedLayoutV2
Header={() => <Header role={role} />}
>
<CanAccess>
<Outlet />
</CanAccess>
</ThemedLayoutV2>
}
>
{/* ... */}
</Route>
</Routes>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
<Refine
accessControlProvider={{
can: async ({ resource, action }) => {
const enforcer = await newEnforcer(model, adapter);
const can = await enforcer.enforce(
role,
resource,
action,
);

return {
can,
};
},
}}
//...
>
<Routes>
<Route
element={
<ThemedLayoutV2
Header={() => <Header role={role} />}
>
<CanAccess>
<Outlet />
</CanAccess>
</ThemedLayoutV2>
}
>
{/* ... */}
</Route>
</Routes>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
In this example, the can method uses a newEnforcer function from Casbin to enforce the access control rules based on the user's role, resource, and action. You can find more information about this in the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/access-control/) and this blog post (https://refine.dev/blog/build-access-control-permify/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai show button not showing after access control provider setup
kapa.ai
kapa.ai9mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- If your Show button is not appearing after setting up the accessControlProvider, it could be due to the access control rules you've defined. The ShowButton component, like other button components in refine, has an accessControl prop that can be used to control its visibility based on user permissions. Here's an example of how you might use it:
import { ShowButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

export const MyListComponent = () => {
return (
<ShowButton
accessControl={{ enabled: true, hideIfUnauthorized: true }}
/>
);
};
import { ShowButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

export const MyListComponent = () => {
return (
<ShowButton
accessControl={{ enabled: true, hideIfUnauthorized: true }}
/>
);
};
In this example, the accessControl prop is set to an object with enabled: true and hideIfUnauthorized: true. This means that the button will be hidden if the user does not have the necessary permissions to access the resource. If the button is not appearing, it could be because the user does not have the necessary permissions according to the rules defined in your accessControlProvider. You might need to adjust these rules to ensure the user has the necessary permissions to see the button. You can find more information about this in the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/components/buttons/show-button/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- If you're seeing an "Unauthorized" message when trying to use the Create button after setting up the accessControlProvider, it's likely due to the access control rules you've defined in your accessControlProvider. The CreateButton component, like other button components in refine, has an accessControl prop that can be used to control its visibility and functionality based on user permissions. Here's an example of how you might use it:
import { CreateButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

export const MyListComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton
accessControl={{ enabled: true, hideIfUnauthorized: true }}
/>
);
};
import { CreateButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

export const MyListComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton
accessControl={{ enabled: true, hideIfUnauthorized: true }}
/>
);
};
In this example, the accessControl prop is set to an object with enabled: true and hideIfUnauthorized: true. This means that the button will be hidden if the user does not have the necessary permissions to access the resource. If you're seeing an "Unauthorized" message, it could be because the user does not have the necessary permissions according to the rules defined in your accessControlProvider. You might need to adjust these rules to ensure the user has the necessary permissions to use the Create button. You can find more information about this in the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/components/buttons/create-button/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai add accessControlProvider without any external library
kapa.ai
kapa.ai9mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can add accessControlProvider without using any external library. The accessControlProvider is a prop in the <Refine> component that accepts an object with a can method. This method is used to control whether the requested access is granted. It takes resource and action as parameters. Here's an example of how you might implement this:
<Refine
accessControlProvider={{
can: async ({ resource, action }) => {
// Define your access control logic here
// For example, let's allow access only if the resource is 'posts' and the action is 'list'
if (resource === 'posts' && action === 'list') {
return { can: true };
}

// If the condition is not met, deny access
return { can: false, reason: 'Unauthorized' };
},
}}
/>
<Refine
accessControlProvider={{
can: async ({ resource, action }) => {
// Define your access control logic here
// For example, let's allow access only if the resource is 'posts' and the action is 'list'
if (resource === 'posts' && action === 'list') {
return { can: true };
}

// If the condition is not met, deny access
return { can: false, reason: 'Unauthorized' };
},
}}
/>
In this example, the can method checks if the resource is 'posts' and the action is 'list'. If both conditions are met, it returns { can: true }, granting access. If not, it returns { can: false, reason: 'Unauthorized' }, denying access. You can adjust this logic to suit your needs. For example, you could check the user's role and grant or deny access based on that. You can find more information about this in the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/accessControl-provider/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai setup testing in refine
kapa.ai
kapa.ai9mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Setting up testing in refine is straightforward as the framework's components and hooks are designed to be testable and work independently of each other. While unit testing is not necessary because refine is already tested by its maintainers, you can write unit tests in your own code. However, it is strongly recommended to write end-to-end tests for your application. Refine uses the Cypress framework as an example, but you are free to write tests with any framework you want. Here's an example of how you can set up testing with Cypress in a refine project: 1. First, create a new refine project with the Cypress example:
npm create refine-app@latest -- --example with-cypress
npm create refine-app@latest -- --example with-cypress
2. Then, navigate to the project directory:
cd with-cypress
cd with-cypress
3. Now, you can run your tests with Cypress. Remember, this is just an example. You can set up testing with any framework you prefer. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation on testing (https://refine.dev/docs/testing/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
