Hi,

I have an idea on a multi-level user login system, where users/groups could be assigned permissions to access certain pages. This will be a add-on to a existing system.

I have attached a screen-shot of my idea. The idea is that permissions can be auto assigned by clicking different check boxes and clicking a update button.

Any code snippets/ links or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

This is the database i would setup

user_table
username
password

group_table
group_id
group_name

The "bridge" table that will allow a user to be in multiple groups
user_access_table
group_id (fk to group_table)
username (fk to user_table)

Example data:
user_table
jsmith password1
jdoe password2
bdalton password34

group_table
1 Finance
2 Sales team
3 Human Resources

user_access_table
3 jdoe
3 jdoe
1 jsmith
2 bdalton
1 bdalton
3 bdalton

When you are creating your example gui with the check boxes, pull the group names and ids from the group_table - Your checkbox value should equal the id.

When you do your insert just insert the username and group_id into the user_access_table


Let me know what questions you have.

3 jdoe

3 bdalton
