Subject A Newbie Question

Hi All,

I have developed an app in Delphi. I have been adding and deleting
users in the database direct from my app, using TIBSecurityservice.

No Problem. My question relates to roles.

Am I right in saying the following, users are for the server but
roles are database specific?

This is what I want to achieve. Currently I have no roles at all but
have decided to implement roles, security will be at database level
as well as app level. At the app level, certain roles will access
certain forms (menu Items).

Currently users log in showing user name and password.

1. I do not want the user to have to enter a role at log in time (In
fact each user will only have one possible role and as far as I am
concerned, need not even know what that role is)

2. How can I ascertain the role immedietly after logging in so that I
can make certain menu items invisible?

3. How do I allocate a role to a user, is it via isc4.gdb or my own

Thanks in advance
