Adding Session Variable to Security Assist pages?

Adding Session Variable to Security Assist pages?

Hi folks

I have a page where I want to auto fill a Dealer_ID into a form and the page is secure with SA. So it has a session variable from the users table: <?php echo $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_UserID']; ?>" />

However, when I set up the pages, I did not request the variable for <?php echo $_SESSION['SecurityAssist_DealerID']; ?>" /> Which I added to the User table. The User ID is only a key auto number 1,2, 3, etc.

What I want to do is auto fill the dealer ID into the form but I cannot figure out how to access the DealerID from the session. Is there a way to add this in now that the pages are created?


I tried to figure out a way to set $DealerID as a variable, but I can't figure out how to call the DealerID from the user table using the session user id.

TIA,
Jeff

Has this session variable already been set (perhaps by the login processing)?

$_SESSION['SecurityAssist_DealerID']

If so, just populate the field with the session variable.

I did not set the session for Dealer_ID, when I set up the original security pages. I set the session to UserID which, is a key field, and a simple number like 1, 2, 3, etc. I am hoping to extract or add the Dealer ID to this session to place it in the field.
Thanks
Jeff

The Dealer ID is a column of the users table, correct?

on your login page, open the Server Behaviors panel (Window -> Server Behaviors). Find the Security Authenticate user server behavior, and double click it to edit it.

Go to the Session tab, Click the plus button and select the Dealer ID column.

Not quite working

Hi Jason,
I put up a video showing how this attempt to add dealer id is not quite working.
Dealer_ID is one of my database fields in the Users table.
I appreciate the help. Session USER ID works, but not Session Dealer ID

try adding the following code at line 1:

php:
<?php @session_start(); ?>




to see a listing of all session that are started, add the following code to the body of your page:

php:
<?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?>

Excellent!

Thanks Jason, I can now automatically enter the dealer ID for new requests and with read only in search, prevent him from searching other's orders.
This is great.
Thanks again.
Jeff
