I need to redirect users function of his role using external authenticate.

In my form_alter() I have:

$form['#validate'] = array(
$form['#submit'][] = 'beneficiaire_user_login_dispatch';

My function to authenticate:

function beneficiaire_authenticate($form, &$form_state){
  module_load_include('inc', 'beneficiaire', 'ws');

    if('admin' == $form_state['values']['name']){
        user_login_authenticate_validate($form, $form_state);
    $authResponse = beneficiaire_ws_authenticate($form_state['values']['name'], $form_state['values']['pass']);
        if($authResponse)   {
            user_external_login_register($form_state['values']['name'], 'beneficiaire');
            $account = user_external_load($form_state['values']['name']);
            $form_state['uid'] = $account->uid;
            $account->roles[4]= 'beneficiaire';
      $_SESSION['account'] = $authResponse;

And finally my dispatch function where the aim is to redirect users function of their account status / type:

function beneficiaire_user_login_dispatch($form, &$form_state){

My point is, each user is always redirected to /node. How can I redirect them function of account status ?


  • Have you tried with $form_state['redirect'] = 'path/to' ? or drupal_redirect_form ? – Gianni Di Falco Jan 23 '15 at 9:00

I've found a solution:

function beneficiaire_user_login($form, &$form_state){
    $_GET['destination'] = 'update-password';
    $_GET['destination'] = 'order';

    Nice, looks very good. You also can use drupal_get_query_parameters (It returns An array containing query parameters, which can be used for url().) – Gianni Di Falco Jan 23 '15 at 9:09

You should check a few things:

  1. Use $form_state['redirect'] instead of drupal_goto
  2. Check other submit functions attached in $form['#submit'] array. Probably one has redirect to /node
  3. Follow Drupal coding standards :)
