Set Cookie Fails to Set RandomPassword As Value

Set Cookie Fails to Set RandomPassword As Value


I am trying to set a Cookie value to use RandomPassword but the Wizard always sets the Value to an empty field.

I am doing this as part of implementing hashed passwords for SecurityAssist. I am following the series of seven videos @ securityassist/ that describe how to modify SecurityAssist generated pages to use a hashed password. In particular, the 7th video (Updating Send Password (Interactive Tutorial)) describes how to add a new Session Variable (Cookie) that will be set to a Random Password by performing Server Behaviors | Add | WA Cookies Toolkit | Set Session Variable. In the resulting Wizard window I set the Session value source to the SecurityAssist Random Password but upon selection the Session Variable value field is always blank!

I have attached a snapshot of the Session Value Wizard window that shows the result of selecting RandomPassword as the value. After selecting RandomPassword and specifying the number of characters, upon return to this main Wizard window the value field is always empty! If, as a test, I select other values sources, the source field is filled with PHP code, but it is always empty when I select RandomPassword.

Can someone please help me understand what is going wrong. Or, worse case, can someone tell me what the line of PHP code for RandomPassword should be so I can manually patch it?

Thank you.
