User Login redirect based on user or admin

Is it possible to setup the login page to redirect to either of 2 different pages "User Control panel "OR "Admin Control Panel" based on filters like:

$Authenticate->addFilter("UserType", "=", "i", "user");
$SuccessRedirect = "user-control-panel.php";

$Authenticate->addFilter("UserType", "=", "i", "admin");
$SuccessRedirect = "admin-control-panel.php";

Or do you have to create 2 separate login pages?

Probably the easiest solution is to not redirect in the server behavior at all, then save the UserType as a session variable and manually add the redirect after the authentication runs like:

php:
<?php

if ([use same trigger as authentication]) {
  if (isset(
$_SESSION['UserType']) && $_SESSION['UserType'] == "user") {
    
header("location: user-control-panel.php");
    die();
  }
  if (isset(
$_SESSION['UserType']) && $_SESSION['UserType'] == "admin") {
    
header("location: admin-control-panel.php");
    die();
  }
}
?>


Either that or you could just apply the server behavior twice.on the page and don't set a failed redirect so that if the first one doesn't log in the second will. Then in the php below just do the failed redirect like:

php:
<?php

if ([use same trigger as authentication]) {
    
header("location: login.php?failed=1");
    die();
}
?>

Great! I went with the first option, worked a treat!

I must say the MySQli extension is bloody BRILLIANT! I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about buying it. The code is SOOOOO much easier to read, update or add to.

Ray your customer support is what sets WebAssist apart from any other company I have dealt with, well done!

Need Help: Am looking to do the same feature but I do not understand.

I must be doing something wrong. I feel like I do not understand this servior behavior. The tutorials do not help. Please help.

The code looks correct. I'd need FTP access to debug any further to see why it isn't working.

I am having the same issue and tried setting up the 2 seperate pages like recommended above. I have it working correctly when I direct to just a single page after login. I know part of the issue is the [use same trigger as authentication] but cant figure it out. Can you look at my code and see what you think.

You need to save the userType variable in the session in the authentication process.

The trigger on line 27 should be:
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {

Thats what I had before I sent it to you. Still wont work. Just goes back to the login screen.

The code block you recommended above, should it be listed below the Login server behavior or above it? or part of it. Thats where I'm confused the most.

Do I need to have a recordset defined that will read 'userType' from the database?

I thought that in the Login User behavior I would be able to store the userType in the 'Store Values' column. When I highlight the column and enter the name in the box it will not save it. Just goes back to blank.

Thanks.

Just a FYI. The problem is this does not work correctly with CS5. I am sure if I knew how I could have manually done it but.....
I tried it on a CS6 and it works perfectly.. Now I dont feel so stupid...
