restrict access pages to users with admin privileges

restrict access to CMS pages to users with admin privileges

I added an 'admin' field to my user database. I'd like to restrict access to the CMS pages to folks who have the admin permission. I found the server behavior access restriction option for username, password, and access level, but I don't know how to proceed from here.... Or if that is even the correct tool for limiting access.

Thanks for your help!

see the user level authentication tutorial for details:

it was written for security assist 1, but the concepts still apply

Hmmmm..... I'm having some trouble getting the Security Assist wizard to open. I click on the + in the server behavior panel, click on WebAssist, click on Security Assist, click on Authenticate User, and then a window blinks onto the screen, but then disappears. I'm assuming that's the wizard.... What could be the problem? The page does already have a user login authentication, but when I tried to click on that behavior to modify it, the window does the same thing.... blinking onto the screen and then disappearing.

What's my next step? Thanks!
