Hi I am trying to build a module in which people will register on my portal as students or instructors. Then they will be able to purchase a test, complete it and get there certification.
I can understand that I have to create separate dashboard layout for each user type. But I was just wondering should I create a separate database table for this 3rd party user. Because they will not be using fuel CMS dashboard. I will create a saperate dashboard for them.
Another question is how fuel handles sessions for those users because I want to make sure it will work exactly as any user dashboard.
If your application has a separate login than FUEL, than you'll want to create a separate table with your own user session using maybe something like Ion_auth (https://forum.getfuelcms.com/discussion/comment/11090#Comment_11090).
FUEL handles sessions using the Fuel_auth class (https://docs.getfuelcms.com/libraries/fuel_auth). However, that session is specific to logging into FUEL and not necessarily your application and you may want to keep those separate.
