Authenticate User Tool

Is there any documentation on this?

I want to add sessions but it doesn't let me. The '=' button does nothing. I also can't set the redirects because it wants me to set a value to check against the database. Why? Isn't that already in the login form? And it won't let me select any fields on that tab either.

how are you accessing the Authenticate User behavior?

it sounds like you are trying to create a new authenticate user behavior by going to WebAssist -> Security Assist -> Authenticate User instead of editing the existing one on the login page.

to edit the existing behavior, go to the Server Behaviors panel (Window -> Server Behaviors) and double click the authenticate user server behavior in the list.


If you set the option to Remember My User Name and Automatically Log in when running the wizard, there will be 2 behaviors, you will need to edit both.


In the archived Documentation section of the security assist support page, there is a tutorial for User Level authentication that covers this for Security Assist 1, it is the same process for Security Assist 2.

Thanks Jason, you are exactly correct in what I was trying to do.

But now that I added the session variables the login no longer works?

can you provide a little more detail please?

how does it "not work"?

does it not redirect to the login success page?

when you try to log in, what is happening?

how does this differ from what you expect to happen?

to help us troubleshoot, add the following code to the login page just before the closing </body> tag:

php:
<?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?>



after trying to login what does this output to the login page?

can you send a copy of the login page in a zip archive?

what rules have you applied to the protected pages?

How are those rules defined?
