Insert Record/ set session variable question

Unsing current SuperSuite and DW CS6

I need to set a session variable when I insert a record into my database so that I can query the table for that record on the subsequent page and set image id's to the session variable. When I try to use the DataBridge Insert utility I can see that it gives me an option to set the variable, but it doesn't give me the option to tell it what the key column is (which is suggested in the help file).

Am I missing something here - how do I pass the key column id as a session variable when inserting the record?

I'm attaching an image of the insert page I see.

It gets the key field from the database. It will be what you have defined as the key in the db. If you want to store one of the submitted values you can use the set session value server behavior.

Working but follow-up question

It turns out it was working all along but I was trying to call the variable in an unsecured page. When I applied Security Assist Limit Access to the page the variable showed. I just want to confirm that Session variables created by DataBridge will only work on secured pages? Is there any way to use the session variables on unsecured pages?

Thanks for your help.

you can use sessions on unsecured pages, just make sure to have the following code before trying to reference the session value, to force PHP to look for the session contents:

<?php @session_start(); ?>

security assist adds this code to page in the helper.php file, adding that code manually to the page should do the trick.
