Authorization for different user groups in jforum

Hey,
I've been working on integrating JForum with a system I'm working on and everything's been great so far till I came across the issue of giving users different views depending on the user they are logged in as in my application.
I'm currently using SSO and every user that logs in gets the same administrator view and I want that to change depending on the different user types.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Did you set up different groups/permissions in the admin control panel yet?

Actually I realized I had the views all mixed up. What I was getting was a general user view and I mistook it for administrator view because of the moderation logs.
I logged in as administrator and gave one of the sso users administrator privileges and that worked.

Thanks.
