NAME

  RT::User - RT User object

SYNOPSIS

  use RT::User;

DESCRIPTION

METHODS

Create { PARAMHASH }

ValidateName STRING

Returns either (0, "failure reason") or 1 depending on whether the given name is valid.

ValidatePassword STRING

Returns either (0, "failure reason") or 1 depending on whether the given password is valid.

SetPrivileged BOOL

If passed a true value, makes this user a member of the "Privileged" PseudoGroup. Otherwise, makes this user a member of the "Unprivileged" pseudogroup.

Returns a standard RT tuple of (val, msg);

Privileged

Returns true if this user is privileged. Returns undef otherwise.

Load

Load a user object from the database. Takes a single argument. If the argument is numerical, load by the column 'id'. If a user object or its subclass passed then loads the same user by id. Otherwise, load by the "Name" column which is the user's textual username.

LoadByEmail

Tries to load this user object from the database by the user's email address.

LoadOrCreateByEmail ADDRESS

Attempts to find a user who has the provided email address. If that fails, creates an unprivileged user with the provided email address and loads them. Address can be provided either as Email::Address object or string which is parsed using the module.

Returns a tuple of the user's id and a status message. 0 will be returned in place of the user's id in case of failure.

ValidateEmailAddress ADDRESS

Returns true if the email address entered is not in use by another user or is undef or ''. Returns false if it's in use.

SetName

Check to make sure someone else isn't using this name already

SetEmailAddress

Check to make sure someone else isn't using this email address already so that a better email address can be returned

EmailFrequency

Takes optional Ticket argument in paramhash. Returns a string, suitable for localization, describing any notable properties about email delivery to the user. This includes lack of email address, ticket-level squelching (if Ticket is provided in the paramhash), or user email delivery preferences.

Returns the empty string if there are no notable properties.

CanonicalizeEmailAddress ADDRESS

CanonicalizeEmailAddress converts email addresses into canonical form. it takes one email address in and returns the proper canonical form. You can dump whatever your proper local config is in here. Note that it may be called as a static method; in this case the first argument is class name not an object.

CanonicalizeUserInfo HASH of ARGS

CanonicalizeUserInfo can convert all User->Create options. it takes a hashref of all the params sent to User->Create and returns that same hash, by default nothing is done. If external auth is enabled CanonicalizeUserInfoFromExternalAuth is called.

This function is intended to allow users to have their info looked up via an outside source and modified upon creation.

CanonicalizeUserInfoFromExternalAuth

Convert an ldap entry in to fields that can be used by RT as specified by the attr_map configuration in the $ExternalSettings variable for RT::Authen::ExternalAuth.

SetRandomPassword

Takes no arguments. Returns a status code and a new password or an error message. If the status is 1, the second value returned is the new password. If the status is anything else, the new value returned is the error code.

ResetPassword

Returns status, [ERROR or new password]. Resets this user's password to a randomly generated pronouncable password and emails them, using a global template called "PasswordChange".

This function is currently unused in the UI, but available for local scripts.

GenerateRandomPassword MIN_LEN and MAX_LEN

Returns a random password between MIN_LEN and MAX_LEN characters long.

SetPassword

Takes a string. Checks the string's length and sets this user's password to that string.

_GeneratePassword PASSWORD [, SALT]

Returns a string to store in the database. This string takes the form:

   !method!salt!hash

By default, the method is currently bcrypt.

HasPassword

Returns true if the user has a valid password, otherwise returns false.

IsPassword

Returns true if the passed in value is this user's password. Returns undef otherwise.

AuthToken

Returns an authentication string associated with the user. This string can be used to generate passwordless URLs to integrate RT with services and programms like callendar managers, rss readers and other.

GenerateAuthToken

Generate a random authentication string for the user.

GenerateAuthString

Takes a string and returns back a hex hash string. Later you can use this pair to make sure it's generated by this user using "ValidateAuthString"

ValidateAuthString

Takes auth string and protected string. Returns true is protected string has been protected by user's "AuthToken". See also "GenerateAuthString".

SetDisabled

Toggles the user's disabled flag. If this flag is set, all password checks for this user will fail. All ACL checks for this user will fail. The user will appear in no user listings.

Disabled

Returns true if user is disabled or false otherwise

PrincipalObj

Returns the principal object for this user. returns an empty RT::Principal if there's no principal object matching this user. The response is cached. PrincipalObj should never ever change.

PrincipalId

Returns this user's PrincipalId

HasGroupRight

Returns 1 if this user has the right specified in the paramhash for the Group passed in.

Returns undef if they don't.

OwnGroups

Returns a group collection object containing the groups of which this user is a member.

HasRight

Shim around PrincipalObj->HasRight. See RT::Principal.

Returns true if the current user can see the user, based on if it is public, ourself, or we have AdminUsers

CurrentUserCanModify RIGHT

If the user has rights for this object, either because he has 'AdminUsers' or (if he's trying to edit himself and the right isn't an admin right) 'ModifySelf', return 1. otherwise, return undef.

CurrentUserHasRight

Takes a single argument. returns 1 if $Self->CurrentUser has the requested right. returns undef otherwise

Preferences NAME/OBJ DEFAULT

Obtain user preferences associated with given object or name. Returns DEFAULT if no preferences found. If DEFAULT is a hashref, override the entries with user preferences.

Class or object method.

May be invoked in three ways:

    $UserObj->Format;
    RT::User->Format( User => $UserObj );   # same as above
    RT::User->Format( Address => $AddressObj, CurrentUser => $CurrentUserObj );

Possible arguments are:

User

An RT::User object representing the user to format. Preferred to Address.

Address

An Email::Address object representing the user address to format. Address will be used to lookup an RT::User if possible.

CurrentUser

Required when Format is called as a class method with an Address argument. Otherwise, this argument is ignored in preference to the CurrentUser of the involved RT::User object.

Format

Specifies the format to use, overriding any set from the config or current user's preferences.

PreferredKey

Returns the preferred key of the user. If none is set, then this will query GPG and set the preferred key to the maximally trusted key found (and then return it). Returns undef if no preferred key can be found.

HasBookmark TICKET

Returns whether the provided ticket is bookmarked by the user.
