plone.app.users 2.0.3

A package for all things users and groups related (specific to plone)

Introduction
============

This package provide the registration form for new users using z3c.form_ forms.
It allows the site administrator to select fields from a schema to appear on
the registration form.

Overriding / extending the default schema
=========================================

Thanks to FormExtenders, the form can be manipulated in many ways. The
following example is from `collective.examples.userdata`_, see there for more
information.

Overriding userdata form fields
-------------------------------

We can register a IFormExtender to add fields and modify the form. First
register it in the ZCML::

  <adapter
    factory="my.customschemachema.UserDataPanelExtender"
    provides="plone.z3cform.fieldsets.interfaces.IFormExtender" />

Where the `customschemachema.py` contains::

    from zope.publisher.interfaces.browser import IDefaultBrowserLayer
    from zope.component import adapter
    from zope.interface import Interface

    from z3c.form.field import Fields

    from plone.app.users.browser.userdatapanel import UserDataPanel
    from plone.supermodel import model
    from plone.z3cform.fieldsets import extensible


    class IEnhancedUserDataSchema(model.Schema):
        . . . all the custom fields to add . . .


    @adapter(Interface, IDefaultBrowserLayer, UserDataPanel)
    class UserDataPanelExtender(extensible.FormExtender):
        def update(self):
            fields = Fields(IEnhancedUserDataSchema)
            self.add(fields, prefix="IEnhancedUserDataSchema")

Storing / retreiving custom fields
----------------------------------

To store the values alongside default fields, we need to add fields to
``profiles/default/memberdata_properties.xml``. For example::

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <object name="portal_memberdata" meta_type="Plone Memberdata Tool">
      <property name="country" type="string"></property>
    </object>

Before values can be read and written, there needs to be a data manager to
fetch the values. The default manager will read/write any field defined in
the schema, so most of the work is done for you::

    from plone.app.users.browser.account import AccountPanelSchemaAdapter

    class EnhancedUserDataSchemaAdapter(AccountPanelSchemaAdapter):
        schema = IEnhancedUserDataSchema

If you want to do something different, add a property for that field to
override the default behavior.

Finally, register the data manager in ZCML::

    <adapter
      provides="my.customschemachema.IEnhancedUserDataSchema"
      for="plone.app.layout.navigation.interfaces.INavigationRoot"
      factory=".adapter.EnhancedUserDataSchemaAdapter"
      />

CHANGES
=======

2.0.3 (2014-04-19)
------------------

- Test timezone attribute on plone.app.users.
  [thet]


2.0.2 (2014-04-01)
------------------

- More explicit ZCML package includes. At least, the inclusion of
  plone.formwidget.namedfile fixes a problem in Dexterity-less setups, where
  the @@personal-information form couldn't be rendered because NamedBlobImage
  didn't provide IFromUnicode.
  [thet]


2.0.1 (2014-03-02)
------------------

- Fix packaging error.
  [esteele]


2.0 (2014-03-02)
----------------

- Have a soft dependency on plone.app.event and include the timezone field only
  then in the schema, if plone.app.event is available.
  [thet]

- Migrate plone.app.users to use z3c.form instead of zope.formlib.
  [lentinj, vipod, thet]


1.3a1 (unreleased)
------------------

- Query ``ILoginNameGenerator`` utility to get a login name during registration.
  This makes it easier to override the default login name logic.
  Part of PLIP 13419.
  [maurits]

- Query ``IUserIdGenerator`` utility to get a user id during registration.
  This makes it easier to override the default user id logic.
  Part of PLIP 13419.
  [maurits]

- Support ``use_uuid_as_userid`` site property.
  Part of PLIP 13419.
  [maurits]

  himself.
  [tschanzt]

  [seanupton]

- Fixed i18n of new_password field in change-password view.
  [vincentfretin]

- Fix email as login validation in the personalize form (UserDataPanel).
  This is for the case when email is used as login.  It checked that a
  changed email address was valid as user id.  But the user id is
  never changed here, only the login name.  We only need to check if
  this address is not used by another user.
  [maurits]

- Fix to not break if passwords contain non-ASCII characters.
  This closes https://dev.plone.org/ticket/13114
  [davisagli]

  [davisagli]

------------------

- Check for permission when editing other users' profiles.
  This fixes http://dev.plone.org/plone/ticket/11842 and
  http://plone.org/products/plone/security/advisories/CVE-2011-1950

1.1 - 2011-04-03
----------------

- Include plone.app.controlpanel configure.zcml because we use permissions
  defined in this package.
  [vincentfretin]

- Use portal object instead of self.context in AddUserForm so we can easily
  subclass the class for another context.

------------------

- Fixed test of the default user portrait, which changed from
  defaultUser.gif to defaultUser.png in Products.PlonePAS 4.0.5.

1.1b1 - 2011-01-03
------------------

- Depend on ``Products.CMFPlone`` instead of ``Plone``.
  [elro]

- Don't allow non-Managers to add new users to groups that grant the Manager
  role.
  [davisagli]

- Protect the user management forms with the
  "Plone Site Setup: Users and Groups" permission instead of the generic
  "Manage portal" and "Manage users".  This requires
  plone.app.controlpanel >= 2.1b1.
  [davisagli]

  [maurits]


1.0.3 - 2011-01-03
------------------

- Don't assume that fields in the user schema will be saved in property sheets
  when a new user registers. Instead, adapt the navigation root to the user
  schema to get the same adapter as is used on the Personal Information form,
  and use it to save the values from the registration form.
  [davisagli]

- Fixed critical error on add user page
  when some groups have a non-ascii character in their title.
  Sort groups on their title normalized.
  Token and value in terms in the groups vocabulary were switched.

  [thomasdesvenain, vincentfretin, davisagli]


1.0.2 - 2010-11-24

  [maurits]

- On the anonymous registration form, do not offer to send an email with a link
  to reset your password if the password fields are right there on the form
  already; we were never actually sending emails with the plain password itself anyway.
  [maurits]

- Allow admins to register a user at all times, also without valid mailhost
  settings.  This means that in a fresh Plone site you can create user accounts
  immediately without having to edit any settings.

  "Add to group" functionality now lives there. We can now get rid of the
  horrid came_from flags that we've been passing around.
  [esteele]

- Internationalized title_join_form_fields and description_join_form_fields.
  This closes http://dev.plone.org/plone/attachment/ticket/9810
  [vincentfretin]


1.0a1 - 2009-11-18
