Order of execution/operations…

Order of execution/operations…

The help is not clear to me as to what actually occurs when multiple redirect scenarios are possible.

Am I correct to believe: authentication redirects are overwritten as you progress through the code (if they succeed) and that the single redirect is only executed when all scripts have completed?

Thus a 'success' redirect header set in Authenticate User (auth username) would be overwritten by the Authenticate User (auth cookie) redirect header if set. However, if there is no redirect header set in Authenticate User (auth cookie) …then the redirect header set in Authenticate User (auth username) remains set and is executed at the end.

And lastly, if failure occurs, then the script is exited from and no subsequent scripts are executed.

Is this how it works?

I'm not really surte what you are asking.

I assume your asking about a login page?

The login page will redirect to the Success or failure page if one is set.

if one is not set, no redirect will be executed.

If the login is successful, the session that defines them as logged in will be set.

if not successful, then no session is set.

Yes, I am referring to a login process.

"Create Security Pages", generates a login.php page that contains TWO Authenticate User scripts, one against database (username) and one against cookies. They both can contain redirects...which has precedence? (the furthest one down the page?)
Does the script stop and redirect, or can a recordset request occur AFTER an authenticate redirect?

I am not editing these pages but analyzing how they work.

the first one is only used if the login form is submited.

the second one is used if the Remember me and auto login options are selected.

the redirects will occur automatically on success or failure.

what do you want to accomplish with the recordset?

I believe I was getting confused with the triggers and thought both were firing...but it is only one per request.
I am doing AJAX requests and have HTML and PHP separated...studying the auto-generated security assist pages had me confused.

I think I am good now ;-)

Thanks,
Brent
