Double opt in tutorial, section Store verified status on login is not up-to-date

Double opt in tutorial, section "Store verified status on login" is not up-to-date

I have followed the tutorial "Double opt in registration", but it does not work as intended. This is probably because I did something wrong when I tried to follow the steps in the "Store verified status on login" section. This part is not up-to-date. What is described in this part does not match what is displayed when you double-click on authenticate, see attached screenshots: img1.png, img2.png.

Then it also says that there should be two Authenticate Users. But on my page, there is only one. This is a bit confusing.

Can anyone at Webassist please update this part step by step. If it is not possible to do this in the tutorial, please tell me what to do.

The step you sent is referring to what to do from the Security Assist Access Rules manager interface, but your screen shot is of the Authenticate User server behavior.

The steps appear up to date, but they refer to what to do in the interface: WebAssist->Security Assist->Manage Site Access->Access Rules Manager...

If you aren't doing multiple access groups (like admin and general users) with the same login, then that part can be ignored.

If you open that interface, then the steps should make more sense.

There is an issue in the Authenticate User Server Behavior that I see as well. At some point the tutorial should have had you create a column called UserAccessGroup or something to that effect and then save that value in the session for login.

I'm so sorry, it was the wrong picture / section. See attached picture.

This is what I do not understand. Can u please be more specific, what to do in this section (Store verified status on login).
It says: In the Server Behaviors panel, open the first SecurityAssist Authenticate User. Change to the Session Values tab.

But there is no Session Value Tab. Only General, Find record, Store Value. What am I supposed to do with emailVerified? Its hard for me to know if the text is incorrect.

The strange thing is that if I choose WebAssist -> SecurityAssist -> Autenticate User. This window is correct according to the text in the tutorial. But I don't want to make a new one. Once again It says: In the Server Behaviors panel, open the first SecurityAssist Authenticate User. Change to the Session Values tab

It seems like I managed to fix Double opt-in registration, after all. But it would have been easier if the tutorial had been up-to-date. A question for Web Assist: can You change tutorials or is it only the creator who can do this?

Now, I would like to allow the user to delete their account. But only through a confirmation link in an email. Is this easy to do?

It shouldn't be too hard. Maybe just add a url parameter to the unsubscribe link and look for that parameter and only show the delete button if it exists.
