Groups Manager

I would like to set up some groups for page access.

I have created a group (I think), and then have gone to add the page security

I have chosen groups and selected the group that I want to access the page. What do I put in the other field? Normally is would be a compare to...

Also, how does the Groups Manager know who the people that are in the group are?

I have read the help doc which doesnt seem to make it any clearer.

Thanks

have you looked through the "User Level Authentication" Tutorial that is available in the solution Recipe Section of the SecurityAssist support page?
securityassist/

A group is a collection of values that a selected variable can equal.

In the UserLevel authentication tutorial, there is a Userlevel session variable being set on login.

The variable can have a value of 1, 2 or 3.


the tutorial crates a group with members 2 and 3.

then creates a rule that compares the UserLevel Session variable to see if the it belongs in that group.

Look through the tutorial, it should clarify Access Groups for you.

I have been through the tutorial and have created some user groups.

The pages that have a simple page access rule ie must be logged in, or must be approved work well, however the pages that allow multiple types of users to access them seem to allow the public in.

Any ideas?

Are you using Groups?


make sure your group does not contain a blank entry, It is possible to add a blank value into the User Group, if a blank value is entered in the Group, it will allow everyone in.

Access Group Manager not Accessing Rules

The Access Group Manager is not allowing me to access any rules for my group. I should be able to create my group and edit rules for that group. However, nothing is happening and I'm missing buttons including my Edit Access Rule Interface. It's like the buttons are not activating. I'm trying to combine two levels of users, an Administrator and a Super Administrator, into a group. The Super Adminsitrator and Administrator group should have access to pages such as update.php, detail.php and results.php type pages. The Super Administrator, in addition has access to insert.php and delete.php type pages.

The group is also not showing up in my Access Pages Manager under "Grant Access If."

On another note, my "Remember my information" and "Log me in automatically" on the Log In Page do not clear when unchecked withing I.E. 10. The sessions (or cookies) have no problems clearing in FireFox.
