Class ExpedientPermission

source code

This class holds all instances of ObjectPermission that have a particular name. ObjectPermission links permittees to a particular object.

A permission may optionally have a view where the browser should be redirected if the permission is missing (for example to request the permission). The view is specified by its full path in view.

The signature for the view function should be the following:

           request, permission, permittee, target_obj_or_class,

   - C{permission} is the missing L{ExpedientPermission}.
   - C{permittee} is the object that needs to exercise the permission.
   - C{target_obj_or_class} is the object or class whose permission is
   - C{redirect_to} is the URL from which the request was made.

One limitation of the system right now is that we can only link to objects that use a PositiveIntegerField as the object ID.
