I bet its easy
BUT I cant get it
Once the user is logged in I would like to the users first name in a "Welcome (username) to my website.
I cant find anything to link the dynamic text to, All I manage to get is the name of the very first userID on my data base. Can you assist me with where I link the "dynamic text " to when user is logged in?
Ta very much

On the log in page, double click the Security Assist Authenticate User server behavior.

On the third page, you can select database columns to store in session variables. Click the plus button and select the user First name column to store the users first name when they log in.

you can then add the user first name session variable to your pages to display the logged in users first name.

hello,

i want to do the same thing, what i would like to do is, once the user has logged in, i want his or her first name to be displayed on a certain part of each pages.

i followed the steps you made for david, now my problem is,

1. from my normal unlogged-in pages, i have this log in link.
2. now what i want to happen is, when user logs in, this link will be replaced to log out, and the users first name will be displayed.
3. how will i do that?

thanks

to display the logged in users name, double click the Authenticate user server behavior on the Lofin page. Go to the third step of the authenticate user server behavior. Clic kthe plus button and select the users first name column to have it stored in a session variable.

On the page you wish to display the users first name, open the bindings panel and drag the first name session variable to your page.



for the log out link:
security assist will create a default "Logged Into <table name>" rule.

On your page, create the login and log out link.

Select the login link, then go to Insert -> WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Show Region. from the rules list, select the "Not Logged Into <table name>" rule.


Now select the logout link, then go to Insert -> WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Show Region. from the rules list, select the "Logged Into <table name>" rule.
