Finding my database tables in Rules Manager / SecurityAssist

Finding my database tables in Rules Manager / SecurityAssist

When I access Rules Manager and click to add a rule, the dynamic link shows only Session and Server variables. The app being secured needs only a simple login page, perhaps also logout. If I create those, identifying the db and the subscriber table, will the Rules Manager dynamic link start showing my db?

Am just learning the Security Assist tool. Sorry for the newbie question.

And thanks, especially on a Turkey-day Friday. David

No, your security assist rules should be using the session variables.

the way the login behavior works is this:

You set up a login form, and apply the login behavior. In the login behavior you select the table that contains the user info, on the Data Base tab, you select the username and password columns, and bind those to the form elements in your login form, on the Session tab, you select columns like the ID column to save to a session on successful login.

your login rule will then be set to Allow if the ID Session is not blank. The ID session that is created by the login behavior will be blank unless a user has logged in.

On the session tab, you can add other columns to save as a session as well.

Thanks so much, Jason. I really appreciate the rundown in detail.

Incidentally, in my search through other posts, I found http://www.webassist.com/forums/posts.php?id=29554 . Two items come out of that.

One: I will have both users and admins, different groups of course and so different access permissions. In post 29554, I discover discussion of such a setup. Is there a full discussion of this somewhere, since I am not sure I have all the details via that post?

Two: That post references "archived documentation for SA." But so far I have not found such. Can you point to what I may be missing?

As always, much thanks,

(In the PM, a side note.)
