Returns a string that contains the url to display a guild icon.

<?php

AppZone

User authentication for apps registered in AppZone

URL values

Because of php serialize, checksum must be validated before user value can be safely used.

Validating checksum will also give strong guarantee that user is who they claim to be.

Example how response is created

$userArray = [
  'timestamp' => "0.9696200 1503915319",
  'app_url' => 'http://...',
  'id' => "1",
  'char_name' => 'player',
  'race' => 'tryker',
  'cult' => 'neutral',
  'civ' => 'neutral',
  'organization' => 'marauder',
  'guild_id' => '105906000',
  'guild_icon' => '17',
  'guild_name' => 'guild',
  'grade' => 'Leader',
  'lang' => 'en'
];

$user = base64_encode(serialize($userArray));
$checksum = hash_hmac('sha1', $user, $appKey);
                

timestamp contains microseconds and seconds when response was created and should be checked to prevent replaying same response multiple times.

app_url must be checked to prevent same AppZone response to be used in other apps.

PHP interface

ryzom_app_authenticate(&$user)

This function verifies AppZone user and checksum url parameters. Uses $_GET['user'] and $_GET['checksum'] directly.

Function returns boolean true if successful. $user variable will contain info from AppZone or an error message if there was an error

$_SESSION['app.user'] is set for future requests. PHP session is required

Constants that should be defined

RYAPI_AUTH_KEY
secret key in AppZone
if empty, then user info is not verified (not recommended)
RYAPI_APP_URL
app url in AppZone
if empty, then automatic best guess url is tried
if false, then app url is not verified
RYAPI_APP_MAXAGE
max age in seconds for AppZone url to be valid
if 0, then timestamp is not verified
<?php
  require_once "ryzomapi_lite.php";

  define('RYAPI_AUTH_KEY', 'secret-key');
  define('RYAPI_APP_URL', 'http://app.url/');
  define('RYAPI_APP_MAXAGE', 30);

  session_start();

  $user = false;
  if (ryzom_app_authenticate($user)) {
    $charName = htmlspecialchars($user['char_name']);
    echo "Hello {$charName}!";
  } else {
    $error = htmlspecialchars($user);
    echo "Authentication failure ({$error}).";
  }
