Security and Authentication

You can make full use of the Symfony Security Component to handle complex authentication/authorization scenarios. Please be aware that also the Pimcore admin UI uses the Security component, so be careful when changing/modifying the configuration.

Login example

The Demo CMS profile provides a simple login example using a User Pimcore object and a form_login authenticator which allows a site-wide login with public and secured areas:

A simplified guide to this setup is illustrated in Authenticate against Pimcore Objects.

For more complex examples, custom user providers and a full configuration reference please read the Symfony Security Component documentation.
