top menu tab to external URL

Thursday 26 December 2013 10:05:19 am - 10 replies


I'm trying to create a link to external URL (www/ for example). I found how to insert a new tab on top menu but the link is <host>/<site_access>/ . How can I change menu.ini.append.php in order to be redirected?

My idea is to use the pull/request 256 and use user permission to extend my Back office under symfony2.

I have an other question in relation to this one. My redirection is using a route defined in a routing.yml file of my bundle. I would like to catch 'Role' of my user (ex='administrator') in order to define symfony role and permission.

I did this test in my controller :

        $securityToken = $this->container->get('security.context')->getToken();
        $userAuth = $securityToken->isAuthenticated();

        //return true.       
        $repository = $this->getRepository();
        $roleService = $repository->getRoleService();
        $userService = $repository->getUserService();
        $user = $repository->getCurrentUser();
        $role = $roleService->getRoleAssignmentsForUser($user);

But I have this message :

User does not have access to 'read' 'role'

So I don't think I have my user logged in my Back Office.

Try to add the rule "Role" to your user group, from your Back office role/list

I already have a role (I'm connected as administrator). The problem is when I'm redirected I change of siteacess. So my user isn't logged. I can see it as follow :

        $user = $repository->getCurrentUser()->content;
        //$user = $userService->loadUser(14);

The problem come from my configuration :How to configure ezpublish -> to be connected on two siteaccess. (When Im logging to siteacessA I'm connecting to siteacessB). If I can do it I will keep my user when I do my redirection.

I hope I was clear.

Thanks for your help.

This is because session are specific to a siteaccess with the default settings, Try

site.ini :




this can help you

Thanks that what I was searching for. I can see I have the same eZSESSID in my back office and my target. But I don't catch my user (style connected as anonymous user). I searching and come back when I have a solution

I achieve to catch my user .

I add 'session_name: eZSESSID' for my admin_siteaccess in ezpublish.yml.

About security do you think it's safe ?

Thanks for your help
