User is active or not

User is active or not

Hi,

userActive =1 or 0

How can I block users from logging in and display "Account Disabled", if I have userActive=0 and allow them access if userActive=1?

I have a login.php page and several pages I setup access rules for. If you would tell me the steps.

Thanks

Ed

you cant prevent them from logging in _and_ show the message. you would need them to be logged in to show the message.

Create an access level that does not allow access to the restricted page if the userActive column is 0

on the login page, edit the authenticate user server behavior, on the third page, click the plus button so the userActive column is stored in a session

create a new access rule that uses the userAccess session and makes sure it is equal to 1.

use that access restriction rule on all of the restricted pages.


on the login page, you can use the security assist show region behavior to show the account disabled message.

Thanks Jason, I had to read that several times I figured out where to put everything *late night
Seems to be working. Only trouble is displaying the account disabled message.

So I have

login.php with a message "account disabled" and did SA show region "userActive"

then on profile.php which is where the login.php would direct to, I created a second SA restrict access page with the way you described below allow access userActive= 1. Now what do I put for

ifaccess denied go to:

because if I set it to go login.php it doesn't show the message it just stays there on the login.php

on the login page, use the security assist Show Region Behavior to show your message

Hi

I put it on the login.php, here's what I have

<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("UserActive")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<div id="AcctDisabled">Account Disabled</div>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>

Doesn't show the message though. Now does it matter if SA show region is third in line in my server behaviors?

SA authenticate user
Recordset
SA show region (userActive)

thanks

the order does not really matter, as long as the message is in the body of the page.

if it is still working, send a copy of the login page and the WA_SEcurityAssist/HelperGroupRules.php file

Hi

Is it possible to just send them to you, and not post them here?

Also another thought I had,

since userActive=1 and that means everything is Good, then shouldn't this be in reverse to work for a user who is not active userActive=0 or null ? Meaning I need to make another session and call it NotActive and make a rule called NotActive < 1, then do a show SA region set for that?

I'm only asking to save time, because if this is the case, I can try it?

thanks
