Which way to go for user level authentication

I want to have 3 user levels namely Administrator (1), Editor (2), user (3). Users can only add an entry to database. Editors can add and edit these entries. Administrators can add, edit and delete these entries.

I want to have single page for data entry, single page to edit and single page to delete entry.

Now, add entry page will allow all levels to work, edit page will allow only editors and administrators while link to delete entry on this page should be visible only to administrator, and delete entry page is accessible only to administrators.

Can you point me to tutorial on this?

I don't have a tutorial that I know of for this, but I can tell you the steps.

1) Save the UserLevel column in the session from the Authentication server behavior on your login page
2) Go to WebAssist->Security Assist->Manage Site Access->Access Rules Manager and create two rules "admin access" : Allow If UserLevel = 1; "editor access" : Allow If UserLevel = 1, Allow If UserLevel = 2 (user access is the default for a logged in user if they aren't admin or editors, so you don't need that rule)

Now you can use the access rules to hide and show elements on the page using the Security Assist->Show If server behavior, or restrict access to pages based on the security rules you have defined.
