Username & User Access Level session variables

Username & User Access Level session variables

Dreamweaver creates the 2 session variables MM_Username & MM_Usergroup after login using their server behavior.
What is the best way to get SecurityAssist to create the equivalent?
Would I create a recordset on the login page for username & userlevel for the SecurityAssist_User_ID session, then make a further session variable for each with the relevant $row_recordset['column'] ?

I want to display the logged-in user's username & access level on each page in the backend, and also display appropriate content depending on the user's access level (here I guess I could use SA's Show Region)

Cheers
Dave

ON the login page, edit the authenticate user server behavior.

on the session tab, you can select any columns you would like to store in a session at login, then use those session bindings to display it on other pages.

Thanks Jason
I've added the username as a session to the Authenticate User SB, but not sure how to get the userlevel session as the userlevels are in a child table, so are not listed in the selection box.

the user level ID should be stored in the users table, no?

store the user level id in a session, then use a recordset to lookup the user level label.

Still finding my way around SecurityAssist, but getting there.
