How do i login a user with an access level now as that option doesn't appear to be there anymore?

Hi,

There used to be an option to login a user using username, password and access level. This option isn't there on the updated webassist MySQLi selection though, so how do I achieve this now please?

You can save the user's access group in the session using the saved values tab in the Authentication server behavior. Then you can check the value of the session variable on the restricted pages to redirect to the failure/login page if they don't have access.

This does require a bit of hand coding in the current version if you don't have DataBridge. Just use code like this on the top of the page:

php:
<?php

@session_start();
if (!isset(
$_SESSION["AccessGroup"]) || !in_array($_SESSION["AccessGroup"], array(123))) {
  
header("Location: loginpage.php");
  die();
}
@
session_commit();
?>



This would check the saved value "AccessGroup" and if it isn't equal to 1, 2, or 3 then it redirects to loginpage.php.

You could adjust those values to fit your application.

Shouldn’t require any coding.

I haven’t used this extension in a while the main reason is the amount of hand coding required the access level should be a built in option not a manually coding option. I want extensions that reduce hand coding not increase it

You have DataBridge... You could use the groups and rules wizard and wouldn't have to do hand coding.

The previous user only has MySQLi Server Behaviors.

DataBridge includes more robust user management functionality including forgot password retrieval, page generation, and user management.
