redirect to different page on login depending on user level

redirect to different page on login depending on user level

I have an 'Authenticate user' server behaviour of which I have added a Session Value 'user-level'. I have then created two rules in the 'Access Rules Manager' which are 'Administrator' and 'Member' which retrieve their values from the user-level column in the database table. (The user level values in the database table column are 'member' and 'admin'.) I want to use the 'Access Pages Manager to apply the appropriate rules to pages in the Website which is fine. What I am unsure of is - How can I redirect to different pages after login depending on 'user-level'.

You can redirect to a switchboard page after login and on that page have the restrict access server behaviors applied that check the various access groups and redirect to the proper pages.

Hi Ray, Im afraid I don't quite understand what you are calling 'restrict access server behaviours' and how these are applied to check access groups. If I had two access rules which are 'Administration' and 'Member' which check for the values - 'admin' and 'member' in a 'user-level' database column respectively. How would I use these to redirect to their respective landing pages?

Redirect to the Admin page... then add the security assist restrict page access server behavior so that if you aren't admin it redirects you to the member page. Then on the member page add validation so that if you aren't logged in as a member it will take you to the login page.
