 authorizeRead (string $action, PageIdentity $target, PermissionStatus $status=null)
 Authorize read access.This should be used immediately before performing read access on restricted information.Calling this method may have non-trivial side-effects, such as incrementing a rate limit counter.
Parameters
string$action

PermissionStatus | null$statusaggregator for failures
Returns
bool

 authorizeWrite (string $action, PageIdentity $target, PermissionStatus $status=null)
 Authorize write access.This should be used immediately before updating persisted information.Calling this method may have non-trivial side-effects, such as incrementing a rate limit counter.
Parameters
string$action
PageIdentity$target
PermissionStatus | null$statusaggregator for failures
Returns
bool
More...
 
 definitelyCan (string $action, PageIdentity $target, PermissionStatus $status=null)
 Checks whether this authority can perform the given action on the given target page.This method performs a thorough check, but does not protect against race conditions. It is intended to be used when a user is intending to perform an action, but has not yet committed to it. For example, when a user goes to the edit page of an article, this method may be used to determine whether the user should be presented with a warning and a read-only view instead.
Parameters
string$action
PageIdentity$target
PermissionStatus | null$statusaggregator for failures
Returns
bool
More...
 
 getBlock (int $freshness=self::READ_NORMAL)
 
 getUser ()
 The user identity associated with this authority. More...
 
 isAllowed (string $permission)
 Checks whether this authority has the given permission in general.For some permissions, exceptions may exist, both positive and negative, on a per-target basis.
Parameters
string$permission
Returns
bool
More...
 
 isAllowedAll (... $permissions)
 Checks whether this authority has any of the given permissions in general.Implementations must ensure that this method returns false if isAllowed would return false for any of the given permissions. Calling isAllowedAll() with one parameter must be equivalent to calling isAllowed(). Calling isAllowedAny() with no parameter is not allowed.

Parameters
string...$permissions Permissions to test. At least one must be given.
Returns
bool True if the user is allowed to perform all of the given actions
