Restrict access to page based on login and database value

hi guys

This is an easy one I'm sure, but I'm a bit stuck

I have a SecurityAssist login page working fine, on correct login it takes me to a secured page.

What I want to do is also check that a value in my database for that user = Y (so via a CMS their access can be easily restricted)

I've added another Session Value so my user_ID and user_live sessions are:

"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"user_ID".$WA_Auth_Separator."live"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"user_ID".$WA_Auth_Separator."user_live"),

and on my protected page I've tried editing the Rules (as per the screen grab) to try and check if the 'live' column is set to Y or not...

I know this is glaringly wrong somewhere... can you set me straight please, many thanks as always

change the first rule from

Allow if SESSION['user_ID'] <> (blank value)

to:
Restrict if SESSION['user_ID'] = (blank value)


leave the second rule as is.

hi Jason

Thanks for your help - this seems to log me in regardless...

Here's my Login script, and my page security is attached

<?php
if($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"){
$WA_Auth_Parameter = array(
"connection" => $localhost,
"database" => $database_localhost,
"tableName" => "partners",
"columns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"email".$WA_Auth_Separator."password"),
"columnValues" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"".((isset($_POST["Log_In_group_email"]))?$_POST["Log_In_group_email"]:"") ."".$WA_Auth_Separator."".(WA_HashEncryption((isset($_POST["Log_In_group_password"]))?$_POST["Log_In_group_password"]:"")) .""),
"columnTypes" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"text".$WA_Auth_Separator."text"),
"sessionColumns" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"user_ID".$WA_Auth_Separator."live"),
"sessionNames" => explode($WA_Auth_Separator,"user_ID".$WA_Auth_Separator."live"),
"successRedirect" => "partnershome.php",
"failRedirect" => "partnerslogin.php?failedLogin=1",
"gotoPreviousURL" => TRUE,
"keepQueryString" => TRUE
);

WA_AuthenticateUser($WA_Auth_Parameter);
}
?>

For the first rule You have the crittirea set to "<>" (Not equals"

change it to "="


from my initkal reply:

  change the first rule from

Allow if SESSION['user_ID'] <> (blank value)

to:
Restrict if SESSION['user_ID'] = (blank value)  



note that I suggest 2 changes:
1) Change Allow if to Restrict If

2) Change the criteria from "<>" to "="
