Detailed Description

The User object encapsulates all of the user-specific settings (user_id, name, rights, email address, options, last login time).

Client classes use the getXXX() functions to access these fields. These functions do all the work of determining whether the user is logged in, whether the requested option can be satisfied from cookies or whether a database query is needed. Most of the settings needed for rendering normal pages are set in the cookie to minimize use of the database.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ __construct()

User::__construct ( )

Lightweight constructor for an anonymous user.

Use the User::newFrom* factory functions for other kinds of users.

Member Function Documentation

◆ __toString()

User::__toString ( )
Returns
string

Definition at line 332 of file User.php.

References getName().

◆ addAutopromoteOnceGroups()

User::addAutopromoteOnceGroups (   $event)

Add the user to the group if he/she meets given criteria.

Contrary to autopromotion by \ref $wgAutopromote, the group will be possible to remove manually via Special:UserRights. In such case it will not be re-added automatically. The user will also not lose the group if they no longer meet the criteria.

Parameters
string$eventKey in $wgAutopromoteOnce (each one has groups/criteria)
Returns
array Array of groups the user has been promoted to.

◆ addGroup()

User::addGroup (   $group,
  $expiry = null 
)

Add the user to the given group.

This takes immediate effect. If the user is already in the group, the expiry time will be updated to the new expiry time. (If $expiry is omitted or null, the membership will be altered to never expire.)

Parameters
string$groupName of the group to add
string$expiryOptional expiry timestamp in any format acceptable to wfTimestamp(), or null if the group assignment should not expire
Returns
bool

◆ addNewUserLogEntry()

User::addNewUserLogEntry (   $action = false,
  $reason = '' 
)

Add a newuser log entry for this user.

Before 1.19 the return value was always true.

Deprecated:
since 1.27, AuthManager handles logging
Parameters
string | bool$actionAccount creation type.
  • String, one of the following values:
    • 'create' for an anonymous user creating an account for himself. This will force the action's performer to be the created user itself, no matter the value of $wgUser
    • 'create2' for a logged in user creating an account for someone else
    • 'byemail' when the created user will receive its password by e-mail
    • 'autocreate' when the user is automatically created (such as by CentralAuth).
  • Boolean means whether the account was created by e-mail (deprecated):
    • true will be converted to 'byemail'
    • false will be converted to 'create' if this object is the same as $wgUser and to 'create2' otherwise
string$reasonUser supplied reason
Returns
bool true

Referenced by addNewUserLogEntryAutoCreate().

◆ addNewUserLogEntryAutoCreate()

User::addNewUserLogEntryAutoCreate ( )

Add an autocreate newuser log entry for this user Used by things like CentralAuth and perhaps other authplugins.

Consider calling addNewUserLogEntry() directly instead.

Deprecated:
since 1.27, AuthManager handles logging
Returns
bool

Definition at line 5455 of file User.php.

References addNewUserLogEntry().

◆ addToDatabase()

User::addToDatabase ( )

Add this existing user object to the database.

If the user already exists, a fatal status object is returned, and the user object is initialised with the data from the database.

Previously, this function generated a DB error due to a key conflict if the user already existed. Many extension callers use this function in code along the lines of:

$user = User::newFromName( $name ); if ( !$user->isLoggedIn() ) { $user->addToDatabase(); } // do something with $user...

However, this was vulnerable to a race condition (T18020). By initialising the user object if the user exists, we aim to support this calling sequence as far as possible.

Note that if the user exists, this function will acquire a write lock, so it is still advisable to make the call conditional on isLoggedIn(), and to commit the transaction after calling.

Exceptions
MWException
Returns

Does the string match an anonymous IP address?

This function exists for username validation, in order to reject usernames which are similar in form to IP addresses. Strings such as 300.300.300.300 will return true because it looks like an IP address, despite not being strictly valid.

We match "\\d{1,3}\\.\\d{1,3}\\.\\d{1,3}\\.xxx" as an anonymous IP address because the usemod software would "cloak" anonymous IP addresses like this, if we allowed accounts like this to be created new users could get the old edits of these anonymous users.

  • 'registered-multiselect' - as above, using the 'multiselect' type.
  • 'registered-checkmatrix' - as above, using the 'checkmatrix' type.
  • 'userjs' - preferences with names starting with 'userjs-', intended to be used by user scripts.
  • 'special' - "preferences" that are not accessible via User::getOptions or User::setOptions.
  • 'unused' - preferences about which MediaWiki doesn't know anything. These are usually legacy options, removed in newer versions.

The API (and possibly others) use this function to determine the possible option types for validation purposes, so make sure to update this when a new option kind is added.

◆ newFromName()

static User::newFromName (   $name,

Parameters
string$nameUsername, validated by Title::newFromText()
string | bool$validateValidate username. Takes the same parameters as User::getCanonicalName(), except that true is accepted as an alias for 'valid', for BC.
Returns
User|bool User object, or false if the username is invalid (e.g. if it contains illegal characters or is an IP address). If the username is not present in the database, the result will be a user object with a name, zero user ID and default settings.

◆ newFromRow()

static User::newFromRow (   $row,
  $data = null 
)
static

Create a new user object from a user row.

The row should have the following fields from the user table in it:

  • either user_name or user_id to load further data if needed (or both)
  • user_real_name
  • all other fields (email, etc.) It is useless to provide the remaining fields if either user_id, user_name and user_real_name are not provided because the whole row will be loaded once more from the database when accessing them.
Parameters
stdClass$rowA row from the user table
array$dataFurther data to load into the object (see User::loadFromRow for valid keys)
Returns
User

◆ newSystemUser()

static User::newSystemUser (   $name,
  $options = [] 
)
static

Static factory method for creation of a "system" user from username.

A "system" user is an account that's used to attribute logged actions taken by MediaWiki itself, as opposed to a bot or human user. Examples might include the 'Maintenance script' or 'Conversion script' accounts used by various scripts in the maintenance/ directory or accounts such as 'MediaWiki message delivery' used by the MassMessage extension.

This can optionally create the user if it doesn't exist, and "steal" the account if it does exist.

"Stealing" an existing user is intended to make it impossible for normal authentication processes to use the account, effectively disabling the account for normal use:

  • Email is invalidated, to prevent account recovery by emailing a temporary password and to disassociate the account from the existing human.
  • The token is set to a magic invalid value, to kill existing sessions and to prevent $this->setToken() calls from resetting the token to a valid value.
  • SessionManager is instructed to prevent new sessions for the user, to do things like deauthorizing OAuth consumers.
  • AuthManager is instructed to revoke access, to invalidate or remove passwords and other credentials.
Parameters
string$nameUsername
array$optionsOptions are:
  • validate: As for User::getCanonicalName(), default 'valid'
  • create: Whether to create the user if it doesn't already exist, default true
  • steal: Whether to "disable" the account for normal use if it already exists, default false
Returns
User|null

User::newFromName() has roughly the same function, when the named user does not exist.
Parameters

◆ setPassword()

User::setPassword (   $str)

Set the password and reset the random token.

Calls through to authentication plugin if necessary; will have no effect if the auth plugin refuses to pass the change through or if the legal password checks fail.

User::touch ( )
