our client have a list of usernames and passwords and wants to assign each of them to every contact who fill in a web form. as soon as the username/password have been assigned shall be flagged as not available for other users. Is it possible to accomplish this?
We have a predefined list of username/passwords and there must be an automatic functionality that assigns the first free username/password from the list and then flag those data as "assigned" in order to assign other values to the next user.
We know that is possible with a manual action from the site owner, but is it possible to assign those values automatically?
thanks for any help on this
You can not do that and lock out other options etc.
Anyone can choose to set a username and password for people but there are a number of improved security features even recently that makes the above not possible or viable. But to be honest when I read your post I was shaking my head. You need to tell them not to even think to do this, that is entirely unsecure, not safe, risky and bad practise to even consider doing that in this day an age.
With the system once a password has been added in the admin or created as an admin you are not able to see any passwords. They all appear **** so there is no way to indentify what those are.
At any time if a person has forgot or wants to reset their password they can do and change it to something else.No password is sent as text in emails any more, it is only a recovery link.
People should have unique usernames and passwords and choose ones they want, the system also needs a minimum of 6 characters for a password. I am sure BC will at some point update it further to be more secure to require at least one number and capital letter for example too.
