Is there any documentation on using groups? I need to have 5 different levels of access.

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.

Hi I also watched this tutorial for access levels and groups. I noticed when creating the levels you can compare to a dynamically retrieved user level by choosing the lightning bold but if you assign groups there is no lightning bold to specify to check against a dynamicaly retrieved access level.

In the tutorial you enter a fixed value as the access level to compare to but i for sure would like to retrieve this level from a table in the database, the same would apply when creating groups. This way the access level will stay working and i can change or add access levels in my table to use.

How to do groups in this way?

security assist cannot dynamically set the group rules. how is security assist supposed to know what mean when you add the group to your database?


It can save the value of the group from the users table, but you need to use static values for comparison when creating the access rules.


your database user groups column only sets possible group values that can be assigned to a user, the security assist rules are used to define what those group values actually mean in terms of access to your site.
