Need to create a new record in my merchant table while at the same time creating a new user which inserts the new merchantID in the user table?

Is it possible to insert two new records wit one form when one record is dependant on info from the other new record?

So my problem is this: I need to have merchants be able to log in and check their stats. My DB has a merchant table with all of their info.and a separate table for users which is used for logging in. My question is how to create records simultaneously on both tables?

These are my thoughts: is it possible to create a form that will insert a record into merchant table, retrieve that unique ID and then create a user where the ID is placed in a column on the user table?

OR

Should I be looking at having a two login systems. One that retrieves data from from the user table and then have a separate login for merchants and just have their credentials stored on the merchant table?

OR

Can you give me a better more simple solution that my inexperience won't allow me to find?

Thanks Guys!

yes, use 2 Data Assist insert behaviors, In the data assist insert behavior, you can set the name of a session to save the inserted ID.

In the first insert behavior, make note of the session that will save the inserted ID, and use that session in the second insert behavior as the value for the relational column.

Ok so to clarify... you said to save the "inserted ID" as a session variable, but the ID is being created by the DB with auto-increment and not being inserted into a form?


Follow up question.... I was really hoping to build all components of this site with the newer MySQLI since MySQL is deprecated. You guys have server behaviors for MySQLI login but nothing for Registration. If i use security assist to create the registration process with password recovery, remember me option and password update will I have any issues once my host upgrades to newer PHP versions? If so, does Webassist have plans to release a MySQLI registration server behavior? Last question, if I have to use Security Assist, is there an option for your team to help me convert it to MySQLI or PDO even if it cost me the $100 fee for help.

As always Jason, you and the Webassist team are appreciated! Thanks.

Right, the server behavior will automatically retrieve the ID of the record being inserted and save it to a session.

registration is really just a form that uses an insert to save the users information, you can create the form, then use the insert behavior to save the registration to the users table.

We are currently working on upgrading Data Bridge to be compatible with MySQLi, but i do not have a time frame for when that will become available.

So then can I use the MySQLI insert behavior to create the insert for the registration form? If that's the case how can make the password secure? I've done a little reading about hashing, salt, etc. Seems that Bcrypt is the best option currently. How can I implement that with my registration form?

You would need to hand code the encryption of the password, the insert behavior does not have native support for encryption.
