Hi, Can I create pages on my ps4 site that I create a unique username and password for ? If so, what are the steps to do this. I own all of your extensions. Thanks, Lisa

you identify a particular user by the UserID session value. you would need to know the ID for the particular user name and password, then use security assist to create an access rule to allow if the UserID session value is equal to that particular users ID value.

you can then apply the security assist restrict access behavior using this new rule to the pages for that one user.

please clarify

All good instructions, but can you break it down for me? Can you give me the links for each step and list the steps in order?

look in the database and locate the record for the username and password of the particular user you are doing this for, make note of the value for the UserID primary key column.

Go To Modify -> Security Assist -> Access Rules Manager

Create a new rule, set the condition to allow if.

Click the lightning bolt next to value and select the UserID session variable from the dynamic data bindings.

set the criteria to equals.

set the compare to value to the UserID value you noted from the database in the beginning.


on the pages that will be restricted to this user only, go to insert -> SecurityAssist -> Access Rules Manager to apply the access rule.

further clarification

Thanks for expanding your explanation. Just to make sure that I understand let me repeat back your instructions:

1. look in the database and locate the record for the username and password of the particular user you are doing this for, make note of the value for the UserID primary key column.
* Question - Can I access this info from logging into mysql database?
2. Go To Modify -> Security Assist -> Access Rules Manager
*Question, Is this in Dreamweaver?
3. Create a new rule, set the condition to allow if.
4. Click the lightning bolt next to value and select the UserID session variable from the dynamic data bindings. set the criteria to equals.
5. set the compare to value to the UserID value you noted from the database in the beginning.
6. on the pages that will be restricted to this user only, go to insert -> SecurityAssist -> Access Rules Manager to apply the access rule.

* So, when this user logs into my site, they will then have access to this page (assuming that I have added the page link somewhere on my site), or do I send them a link to this page?

Yes, you get the ID directly from the MySQL database.

  2. Go To Modify -> Security Assist -> Access Rules Manager

Yes, in Dreamweaver Go to Modify -> Security Assist -> Access Rules Manager

  * So, when this user logs into my site, they will then have access to this page (assuming that I have added the page link somewhere on my site), or do I send them a link to this page?  


yes, when the particular user logs in, they will access to these pages

Jason,

1. I cannot find a session variable "userID". Am I missing something?
2. if my user id value is 4, exactly what would I type into the compare value field?

  2. if my user id value is 4, exactly what would I type into the compare value field?

Not working

Jason,

It looks like I did everything that you asked me to do to create a secure page, but it is not taking me to my page:

I think that this may be related to my other issue and am waiting for help.

My page is Segalmediaproductions.com/test/securityAssistTest.php

I keep getting redirected to the login page (as I instructed it to do).

can you post a copy of the securityAssistTest.php page and a screen shot showing how you configured the new access rule.
