The "autoriser" pipeline is a special one. It is simply used to load the authorisation functions the first time that the autoriser() function is called. This pipeline neither accepts arguments nor returns output.


With this pipeline, a plugin can declare its own special authorisations, regrouped in a file named "PluginPrefix_autorisations.php" and declare them in the plugin.xml file as in this example:


In addition to authorisation functions, the file must contain the function called by all of the pipelines ("PluginPrefix_PipelineName()") but it has nothing to execute, e.g.:

function prefixePlugin_autoriser(){}


The "forum" plugin declares several new authorisations. Its plugin.xml file contains:


And the file which is called "forum_autoriser.php" contains:

// declare the pipeline function
function forum_autoriser(){}

function autoriser_forum_interne_suivi_bouton_dist($faire, $type, $id, $qui, $opt) {
	return true;

function autoriser_forum_reactions_bouton_dist(($faire, $type, $id, $qui, $opt) {
	return autoriser('publierdans', 'rubrique', _request('id_rubrique'));

// Moderate the forum?
// = modify the corresponding object (if there is a forum for this object)
// = default rights else (full admin for full moderation rights)
function autoriser_modererforum_dist($faire, $type, $id, $qui, $opt) {
	return autoriser('modifier', $type, $id, $qui, $opt);

// Modify a forum ?  never !
function autoriser_forum_modifier_dist($faire, $type, $id, $qui, $opt) {
	return false;
