Aurora Files documentation

Logging in programmatically

If you have some existing web application, you might want to integrate Aurora Files into it. It is possible to send authentication data from your application into Aurora Files bypassing its login screen.

In order to make use of Aurora Files API, you'll need to initialize it as follows:

include __DIR__.'/../system/autoload.php';
\Aurora\System\Api::Init();

It is assumed that the code itself is located in a subdirectory of main Aurora Files directory. If that's not the case, you'll need to adjust the filesystem path which points to autoload.php file. And of course, you can supply full filesystem path there, e.g.:

include '/var/www/html/files/system/autoload.php';

In order to log specified user into their email account, Login method of Core module is used. It takes 2 parameters: email address and account password.

Below, please find sample code for logging a particular user into Aurora Files. For the sake of simplicity, email and password are supplied directly in the code. In actual application, they will probably be taken from session, POST data, etc.

<?php
$sUserLogin = "user@domain.com";
$sUserPassword = "MyPassWord";
include __DIR__.'/../system/autoload.php';
\Aurora\System\Api::Init();
$aData = \Aurora\System\Api::GetModuleDecorator('Core')->Login($sUserLogin, $sUserPassword);
if (isset($aData['AuthToken']))
{ 
    $sAuthToken = $aData['AuthToken'];
    setcookie('AuthToken', $sAuthToken, time()+3600, "/");
    \Aurora\System\Api::Location('../');
}
exit();

Note the line with Api::Location method call. Upon logging user into their account, Aurora Files interface needs to be opened, and this line does that. Once again, it's assumed that the code itself is located in a subdirectory of main Aurora Files directory. You can supply absolute or relative URL (NOT the path) pointing to your Aurora Files installation there.
