Login Redirect

Login Redirect


I'm trying to create a log in redirect dependent on if it is a first time log in attempt. If the log in is for the first time I want to redirect to a page where the person is promoted to change their temporary password.
Otherwise, if they have already changed the password previously, they gain direct access to the secure portion of the site.

Is there any way to set this up with Security Assist? I've tried using cookies re-direct in the WA cookies tool-kit but with no success. Any suggestions?

I've attached the php information for the current log in for your reference.

to accomplish this, you will need to add a new column to the users table to mark whether they have logged in before or not.

for the sake of example, lets cal the new column "loggedIn", set the default value to 0 so when they register this new column will be set to 0.

Next edit the security assist Authenticate user behavior on the login page.

On the third setp, you can select database columns to store in a session. click the plus button and select the loggedIn column.

You will also need to set the success redirect to be a PHP page, it should go to the main success page that you want most users to see if it is not the first login

on the success page, add the following code at line 1:


$_SESSION['loggedIn'] == "0"header("Location: firstLogin.php");

on the firstLogin.php page, you will need to add an update record behavior to update the loggedIn column to 1, use the ID session created by the authenticate user behavior to tell it which record to update..

you should also add code to set the loggedIn session to 1:


$_SESSION['loggedIn'] = 1;

Security Assist Login Success Redirect

VERY simple problem, can NOT find simple solution.

I just want to load a specific URL page according to a field in pcm2_user table if login is success. I can not even find in the documentation how to redirect to a page if login successful.

WAY behind and need quick help.

you have 2 problems here.

1) to set the login success redirect URL, edit the authenticate user server behavior that is added to the login page. in the authenticate user server behavior, you cn set the page that will be loaded on login sucess or failure.

2) to redirect to a page specified in the database, you will need to add some custom code to the login success page.

In the authenticate user server behavior on the logion page, set a page to redirect to on login success, then go to the third step of the authenticate user behavior, on this step, you can select database columns to store in a session variable, click the plus button and select the column that contains the url.

Now on the login success page, you will need to add custom code to redirect based on the session that is stored.

for example, if the column name is landingPage and it contains the page name that should be loaded, the code would look like this:

<?php if(isset($_SESSION['landingPage']) && $_SESSION['landingPage'] != ""header("Location: ".$_SESSION['landingPage']); ?>
