(First apologies if this is not the correct forum)
I'm hoping someone can give me a little help or advice on
options available to me.
Using flex2 I have built a fairly simple flash app that
currrently has two panels,
panel1- this presents data in a datagrid which connects to a
mysql4.x db via amfphp1.9.
panel2- this presents textinput boxes and a submit button
(data is submited via php script to the myqsl db)
NB: All my users authenticate via LDAP (novell edirectory)
& there are two kinds of users (Teachers & Students)
What I want to know is:
1- can I allow my users to login to the flash app via their
LDAP usernames? (if so how could I do this)
2- can I assign different rights to the users? (e.g. When a
teacher logs in they get access to view & input data, &
when a student logs in the ONLY have access to view data)
NB: I work in a school so I don't have the budget to buy CF,
FDS. I also do not want to use the userbase in the mysql db, as
this would then require me to maintain two userbases (e.g. LDAP
& MySQL) hence twice the workload.
Any help or suggestions to best approach this problem would
be greatly appreciated.
