Root access with Casbin

I'm running on a standard React with Supabase build. I have Casbin set up with 3 user roles (superAdmin, admin, user). I've been following along with this tutorial: https://refine.dev/blog/refine-pixels-6. So far it's pretty much working as expected during the setup, but I'm unable to get get permissions set for the site route. The following just says that the user doesn't have permission:
p, superAdmin, , (list)|(show)|(edit)|(delete)
p, admin, , (list)|(show)|(edit)|(delete)
p, user, , (list)|(show)|(edit)
p, superAdmin, , (list)|(show)|(edit)|(delete)
p, admin, , (list)|(show)|(edit)|(delete)
p, user, , (list)|(show)|(edit)
My routes look like the following:
<Routes>
<Route
element={
<Authenticated key='authenticated-inner' fallback={<CatchAllNavigate to='/login' />}>
<Layout Header={() => <Header sticky />} Sider={(props) => <Sider {...props} fixed />} Title={Title}>
<CanAccess fallback={<NoPermission />}>
<Outlet />
</CanAccess>
</Layout>
</Authenticated>
}
>
<Route index element={<Dashboard />} />
<Route path='/dashboard'>
<Route index element={<Dashboard />} /> {/* Just a show component */}
</Route>
{/* Other routes... */}
<Route path='*' element={<ErrorComponent />} />
</Route>
<Route
element={
<Authenticated key='authenticated-outer' fallback={<Outlet />}>
<NavigateToResource />
</Authenticated>
}
>
</Route>
</Routes>
<Routes>

<NavigateToResource />

}

Hi @James. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The extracts provided do not include specific details about setting up root access or configuring permissions for site routes using Casbin within a Refine project. They focus more on the general setup of access control with Casbin and Supabase, and how to integrate Casbin with Refine for role-based access control, but they don't cover the specific scenario you're asking about. For a more detailed guide on how to configure Casbin policies for different user roles and how to apply these policies to your routes in Refine, I recommend checking the official Refine documentation and the Casbin documentation. These resources might offer more insights into how to set up and troubleshoot permissions for your specific use case. - Refine Documentation: Access Control in Refine (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/access-control#adding-accesscontrolprovider) - Casbin Documentation: Casbin Official Website (https://casbin.org/) If you're specifically looking to set permissions for the site route and encountering issues, it might be helpful to ensure that your Casbin model and policy definitions are correctly set up and that your Refine accessControlProvider is properly checking these permissions. Also, ensure that your CanAccess component is correctly implemented and used within your route definitions. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai So let's say I have a my root route that has a show component. Currently no matter what I do, it seems to think the user doesn't have permissions to access via Show.

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the extracts provided, there isn't specific information about troubleshooting or configuring permissions for a "show" component at the root route level within the context of using Refine with Casbin or any other access control setup. The extracts mainly discuss various aspects of Refine, such as routing with React Router, custom parameters in access control, and integrating access control with UI components like buttons, but they do not directly address the issue of permissions for a "show" component at the root route. However, considering general practices in Refine for handling permissions with components, you might want to ensure a few things: 1. Correct Use of CanAccess Component: Ensure that the CanAccess component is correctly wrapping your "show" component or route. The CanAccess component should be used to conditionally render components based on the user's permissions. 2. Proper Configuration of Access Control Provider: Make sure your accessControlProvider is correctly set up to evaluate permissions for the "show" action. This involves correctly implementing the can method to check if the current user has permission to perform the "show" action on the given resource. 3. Correct Passing of Parameters: If your "show" component or action requires specific parameters (e.g., an ID to show a specific item), ensure these parameters are correctly passed and evaluated in your access control logic. 4. Debugging and Logging: Add logging to your access control provider's can method to see what permissions are being checked and what the outcomes are. This can help identify if the issue is with the permission logic or the way permissions are being checked. Since the specific details or code snippets to address your scenario directly from the extracts are not available, these general steps might help you troubleshoot the issue. For more detailed guidance, reviewing the official Refine documentation, especially sections related to access control and routing, might provide further insights: - Access Control in Refine (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/access-control#adding-accesscontrolprovider) - Routing in Refine (https://refine.dev/docs/routing/integrations/react-router) Remember, the key to resolving such issues often lies in ensuring that the access control logic correctly aligns with the application's routing and component structure. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
