User Authentication wizard no showing UserLevel session variable

User Authentication wizard not showing UserLevel session variable

I read an old post that said you can't use Secure Pages with SecurityAssist Pages as the redirects conflict. I had that issue, so I'm trying to add user level authentication to an existing SecurityAssist login page.

So far, I've added a 'UserLevel' database column to my existing User table and am following the tutorial.

In the Authenticate User wizard > Database tab, the tutorial isn't clear where the value comes from. I selected the Server Variable as it was closest to the POST code in the tutorial, even though 'UserEmail' and 'UserPassword' weren't listed (I adjusted the code manually).

In the Dynamic Data window > session group it says select the 'userLevel' session variable, yet there's no userLevel session variable in the list.

If the session variables that you are storing on your login page aren't showing in the bindings, then click the plus button in the bindings panel and choose session variable to add them manually.

The bindings window shows the correct session variables I need to use, but they're not showing up in the wizard. It shows different bindings. Do I just add <?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> where the value goes?

I'm not sure what interface you are in. Can you send a screen grab?

The Bindings grab shows the last four correct session variables I need to use, which don't appear in the Wizard screen grab.

Do I just add <?php echo $_SESSION['UserLevel']; ?> where the value goes?

I would think it would use the same list if you scrolled down. However, you could just select a different session variable and update the session variable name in the text field after.

I've completed the login userLevel Authentication. I selected all the admin DataAssist pages for level 1 Admin access (Level 2 access is Sales). There's a UserLevel column in the users Db with either a 1 or 2 in each record. Need help on the following:

Still have access to the same admin pages without logging in.
Can't log in - get invalid username or password warning on correct entries.

It looks like you had run the wizard multiple times on that page and had some conflicts with form element names and validations. I've corrected all of the issues. Please download the updated page before you overwrite it.

I'm sure I entered the data multiple times without knowing it. I was having issues with the wizard crashing repeatedly at certain points.

It doesn't look like the User Authentication is working correctly. I can still view all the admin pages without logging in. I've set up the authentication for two levels - admin 1 and sales 2. To test, I added four records in the Db (two of each). Doesn't matter which user is logged in, all the admin pages can be accessed. None of the admin pages should be accessible to sales.

Please provide steps to reproduce. It should look like:

1) Go to the page http://.... and log in with the username and password:
2) Then try to go to this page: http://

I think you should not be able to view that page, but you can. What did I do wrong?

With a post like that, I can reproduce the issue and tell you what is wrong since I already have your FTP information.
