Configuration

Basic configuration

Configure the access rules for different URI paths. path defines the URI path for the current rule. The read configuration belongs to the HTTP methods GET and HEAD. Any other method will be treated as write.

The default access is defined with the path all:

plugin.tx_rest.settings.paths {
    all {
        path = all
        read = deny
        write = deny
    }
}

Allow read and write access to the model MyModel of the extension MyExt:

    ...
    my_ext-my_model {
        path = my_ext-my_model
        read = allow
        write = allow
    }
    ...

Allow read and write access for all models of the extension MySecondext:

    ...
    my_secondext {
        path = my_secondext-*
        read = allow
        write = allow
    }
    ...

Additionally you can require a valid user login for write operations:

    ...
    my_protectedext {
        path = my_protectedext-*
        read = allow
        write = require
    }
    ...

Namespaces and vendor prefix

Extensions that are created with a vendor prefix have to include their prefix into the path. \Vendor\MyExtension\Domain\Model\MyModel as an example would need the path vendor-my_ext-my_model.

    ...
    vendor-my_ext-my_model {
        path = vendor-my_ext-my_model
        read = allow
        write = deny
    }
    ...

Advanced configuration

Aliases

Often the full path for a model doesn't fit the clients expectations. To make the paths looking better, path aliases can be defined:

plugin.tx_rest.settings.aliases {
    my_model = my_ext-my_model
}

Root object for collection

Some clients expect a returned data collection to have a root object, others don't. If an array output like the one below meets your demands no further configuration is required.

[
    {
        "uid": 9,
        "name": "Daniel"
    },
    {
        "uid": 10,
        "name": "Paul"
    }
    ...
]

If you require an output like the following you can enable plugin.tx_rest.settings.addRootObjectForCollection = 1 (This setting will NOT apply to custom handlers)

{
    "users": [
        {
            "uid": 9,
            "name": "Daniel"
        },
        {
            "uid": 10,
            "name": "Paul"
        }
        ...
    ]
}

This wraps the whole response array into an object with the key read from the request path (i.e. users).

Tip: The request path will be used as root key, so you may want to configure aliases.
