endpoint_addr and callback_url should not end with '/'.

The callback_url must belong to the URI of your Route. See the code snippet below for an example configuration.

Enabling the Plugin#

You can enable the Plugin on a specific Route as shown below:

curl "http://127.0.0.1:9180/apisix/admin/routes/1" -H "X-API-KEY: edd1c9f034335f136f87ad84b625c8f1" -X PUT -d '
{
"methods": ["GET"],
"uri": "/anything/*",
"plugins": {
"authz-casdoor": {
"endpoint_addr":"http://localhost:8000",
"callback_url":"http://localhost:9080/anything/callback",
"client_id":"7ceb9b7fda4a9061ec1c",
"client_secret":"3416238e1edf915eac08b8fe345b2b95cdba7e04"
}
},
"upstream": {
"type": "roundrobin",
"nodes": {
"httpbin.org:80": 1
}
}
}'

Example usage#

Once you have enabled the Plugin, a new user visiting this Route would first be processed by the authz-casdoor Plugin. They would be redirected to the login page of Casdoor.

After successfully logging in, Casdoor will redirect this user to the callback_url with GET parameters code and state specified. The Plugin will also request for an access token and confirm whether the user is really logged in. This process is only done once and subsequent requests are left uninterrupted.

Once this is done, the user is redirected to the original URL they wanted to visit.

Disable Plugin#

To disable the authz-casdoor Plugin, you can delete the corresponding JSON configuration from the Plugin configuration. APISIX will automatically reload and you do not have to restart for this to take effect.

curl http://127.0.0.1:9180/apisix/admin/routes/1  -H 'X-API-KEY: edd1c9f034335f136f87ad84b625c8f1' -X PUT -d '
{
"methods": ["GET"],
"uri": "/anything/*",
"plugins": {},
"upstream": {
"type": "roundrobin",
"nodes": {
"httpbin.org:80": 1
}
}
}'
