I have been trying to think of ways of providing specific pointers, So, assuming you have a custom login page and a custom python script that processes that page:

In the Python script you could set a cookie for the District:

context.REQUEST.RESPONSE.setCookie('District', district)

where district is the name of the District field in the form. The District parameter is then always available to your page templates and scripts in the REQUEST object.

At the end of your login script you would typically redirect to some specific page like this:

return context.REQUEST.RESPONSE.redirect('aURL')

in exUserFolder you don't have to do anything else - the login works by magic, which is very confusing.

Now for the problems:

If the login is wrong the system will call /standard_error_message, so you have to customise that to send the user back to the login form with a Login failed message.

If the user bookmarks a protected page and tries to jump to it without being logged in, the system will call the login sequence starting in acl_users, so you have to customise that to call your own login page.

After the user has logged in, whenever you need to get the Username you would typically use a python script like this:

from AccessControl import getSecurityManager
return getSecurityManager().getUser().getUserName()

I'll definitely lookout for those ettiquetes.

My python script error got solved as i missed the silly ' ' in the
response.redirect statemnet.
I set the user and pwd request vars in sesson var.

Tried cookie crumbler and MysqlUserFolder and UserFolder also but they
all need to changed much and my requirements are diffrent.

I'm building a trial govt. site for stores management which was built
previously in ASP.
The login page takes the districtname , username and passwd .
according to the type of user different menus are displayed.

For this i need to have the districtname , username and passwd carried on throughout the session.

my current requirement is to pass the session vars through the python
script which is the action of the login form.

I've gone through the zopebook but dint find much help there.

can u plz tell me where do i get to know about pythopn scripting done
in zope n ZPT examples.

i'm really sorry for my erronous language. please dont overlook theese
humble requests.

or the previous one if its wrong.

Apparently, you need some background reading...

Especially, you need to understand that HTTP is a stateless
protocol and *EACH* request must somehow perform its own
authentication. That's why usually login information is
(somehow) coded in a cookie.

You really should follow the advice to look at an existing
UserFolder (they are responsible for authentication).
You may need to adapt/extend an existing UserFolder.
