Webservice and check if user is logged in


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am currently writing an external PHP application to create products using the webservice.

By external I mean this is a normal HTML/PHP page, the user fills in the product data, and then the product is created when he presses submit.

How do I check if the user is logged in or not? Can I do this using the webservice? Do I need to keep a separate user database on my system?

Thanks for the reply. To help others, bootstrapping prestashop into your php file is easy. On top of your page you can include:

global $cookie;

if your php file is on the site root.

Then, to see if a user is logged in or not you can do a:

echo $cookie->logged;

and it will return true if the user is logged in, or nothing if he is not.
