Auto Login / Remember me

Hi,

I've already set up the Security Assist LogIn features and it's all working perfectly.

The client would now like the Auto Login and Remember me features added.

1. What's the difference between the two? Does having both on the page add anything security / convenience wise?

2. How easy is it to add these functionalities to an existing login page? Is there a tutorial somewhere or a help file? I have searched for an answer but can't seem to find it. I don't really want to have to start again with the wizard.

Many thanks,

1) Remember me sets cookies with username and password values and pre-populates the two fields. Auto login will check if the cookies exist and will log you in and skip the login page entirely. Remember me is required for Autologin to work and not the other way around.

2) You use cookies toolkit to set the cookies and set the initial values of the form elements from the cookies, and then you apply the login server behavior a second time on the page with the same settings as the first only using the cookie values for the username, password, and trigger... maybe run the wizard again on another page and look at what it does as a sample.

Thanks Ray, you've explained it beautifully.

I like the suggestion of running the wizard on another page to get the examples. Why didn't I think of that? :-)

Many thanks.

Hi Roy,

I haven't done a registration page but here is the login page if it helps

I'd certainly recommend buying this extension. It's brilliant as are all of WebAssists extensions.

The real beauty is that if you get stuck they are always more than willing to help.
