<h3>Summary</h3>

    <p>This module provides authorization capabilities so that
       authenticated users can be allowed or denied access to portions
       of the web site by group membership.  Similar functionality is
       provided by <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_groupfile.html">mod_authz_groupfile</a></code> and
       <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_dbm.html">mod_authz_dbm</a></code>, with the exception that
       this module queries a SQL database to determine whether a
       user is a member of a group.</p>
    <p>This module can also provide database-backed user login/logout
       capabilities.  These are likely to be of most value when used
       in conjunction with <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authn_dbd.html">mod_authn_dbd</a></code>.</p>
    <p>This module relies on <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_dbd.html">mod_dbd</a></code> to specify
       the backend database driver and connection parameters, and
       manage the database connections.</p>

<h2><a name="requiredirectives" id="requiredirectives">The Require Directives</a></h2>

    <p>Apache's <code class="directive"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_core.html#require">Require</a></code>
    directives are used during the authorization phase to ensure that
    a user is allowed to access a resource.  mod_authz_dbd extends the
    authorization types with <code>dbd-group</code>, <code>dbd-login</code> and
    <code>dbd-logout</code>.</p>

    <p>Since v2.4.8, <a href="../expr.html">expressions</a> are supported
    within the DBD require directives.</p>

<h3><a name="reqgroup" id="reqgroup">Require dbd-group</a></h3>

    <p>This directive specifies group membership that is required for the
    user to gain access.</p>

    <pre class="prettyprint lang-config">Require dbd-group team
AuthzDBDQuery "SELECT group FROM authz WHERE user = %s"</pre>




<h3><a name="reqlogin" id="reqlogin">Require dbd-login</a></h3>

    <p>This directive specifies a query to be run indicating the user
    has logged in.</p>

    <pre class="prettyprint lang-config">Require dbd-login
AuthzDBDQuery "UPDATE authn SET login = 'true' WHERE user = %s"</pre>




<h3><a name="reqlogout" id="reqlogout">Require dbd-logout</a></h3>

    <p>This directive specifies a query to be run indicating the user
    has logged out.</p>

    <pre class="prettyprint lang-config">Require dbd-logout
AuthzDBDQuery "UPDATE authn SET login = 'false' WHERE user = %s"</pre>




</div><div class="top"><a href="#page-header"><img alt="top" src="../images/up.gif" /></a></div>
<div class="section">
<h2><a name="login" id="login">Database Login</a></h2>

<p>
In addition to the standard authorization function of checking group
membership, this module can also provide server-side user session
management via database-backed login/logout capabilities.
Specifically, it can update a user's session status in the database
whenever the user visits designated URLs (subject of course to users
supplying the necessary credentials).</p>
<p>This works by defining two special
<code class="directive"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_core.html#require">Require</a></code> types:
<code>Require dbd-login</code> and <code>Require dbd-logout</code>.
For usage details, see the configuration example below.</p>
</div><div class="top"><a href="#page-header"><img alt="top" src="../images/up.gif" /></a></div>
<div class="section">
<h2><a name="client" id="client">Client Login integration</a></h2>

<p>Some administrators may wish to implement client-side session
management that works in concert with the server-side login/logout
capabilities offered by this module, for example, by setting or unsetting
an HTTP cookie or other such token when a user logs in or out.</p>
<p>To support such integration, <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_dbd.html">mod_authz_dbd</a></code> exports an
optional hook that will be run whenever a user's status is updated in
the database.  Other session management modules can then use the hook
to implement functions that start and end client-side sessions.</p>

    <p>The <code class="directive">AuthzDBDQuery</code> specifies an SQL
    query to run.  The purpose of the query depends on the
    <code class="directive"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_core.html#require">Require</a></code> directive in
    effect.</p>
    <ul>
    <li>When used with a <code>Require dbd-group</code> directive,
    it specifies a query to look up groups for the current user.  This is
    the standard functionality of other authorization modules such as
    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_groupfile.html">mod_authz_groupfile</a></code> and <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authz_dbm.html">mod_authz_dbm</a></code>.
    The first column value of each row returned by the query statement
    should be a string containing a group name.  Zero, one, or more rows
    may be returned.
    <pre class="prettyprint lang-config">Require dbd-group
AuthzDBDQuery "SELECT group FROM groups WHERE user = %s"</pre>

    </li>
    <li>When used with a <code>Require dbd-login</code> or
    <code>Require dbd-logout</code> directive, it will never deny access,
    but will instead execute a SQL statement designed to log the user
    in or out.  The user must already be authenticated with
    <code class="module"><a href="../mod/mod_authn_dbd.html">mod_authn_dbd</a></code>.
    <pre class="prettyprint lang-config">Require dbd-login
AuthzDBDQuery "UPDATE authn SET login = 'true' WHERE user = %s"</pre>

    </li>
    </ul>
    <p>In all cases, the user's ID will be passed as a single string
    parameter when the SQL query is executed.  It may be referenced within
    the query statement using a <code>%s</code> format specifier.</p>

    (or logout) to redirect the user to a URL, which may be
    specific to the user.  The user's ID will be passed as a single string
    parameter when the SQL query is executed.  It may be referenced within
