User Authentication With patUser (Part 2)
Jun 17, 2006 @ 08:09:51

From WeberDev today, there's part two of their "User Authentication with patUser" series, this timie with a focus on managing user data with other patUser functionality.

patUser can do a lot more than just handle user authentication - the library also comes with a large number of methods designed to make the task of managing user data as simple and efficient as possible. Over the course of this second installment, I'm going to show you how these methods work, and how they can be used to quickly create scripts to view, add, edit and delete users (and user attributes) from your database. Keep reading!

They build on the previous article's foundation (and database) to insert some new user information for manipulation and output. They then give some sample code to pull all of the users from the database, pull details for each user (including additional fields created in a database update), and limiting the results based on one of the fields.

They also include another database table and the needed code to help organize the users into groups. They also include the functionality to add and remove groups and users as well as adding and removing people to/from groups directly from the patUser setup. Finally, they finish it with a few "real life" examples to help it all make sense together.
