Auto Submit

Auto Submit

I have a curious problem Im trying to resolve.
The simple question is how is it possible using SA to "auto-login"
That is with without requiring the user to hit the Submit button!

I created a page whereby the username/password fields were populated from the preceding registration page and using <body onload="this.form.submit();"> I believed this would auto-submit. But in fact all I achieve is a continuous looping page submit.

Im assuming this is caused by the body onload expecting to see an Action=URL as opposed to SA handling this.

How, therefore, Can I achieve this with SA?
Can you suggest a solution to resolve this?

In the Security Assist wizard, there is an option to select to include "remember me" and "auto login"

If you have Security Assist 1.x, you will need to make sure to install cookies toolkit installed (included with Security Assist 1) for these options to function correctly.

The way "Remember Me" and "Auto Login" works is this:

When the Remember Me checkbox is clicked, the user name and password are stored in cookie variables. The user name and password text boxes are set to use those cookies as the initial value if they are set.

If the Auto Login Checkbox is also clicked, it triggers a Security Assist Authenticate User behavior that is configured to use the username and password cookies for login.

no sorry misunderstood.

What I am getting at is that after the user has registered and this takes them to a Login page...

I have the username/password fields (hidden fields) populated via cookies from the previous registration page...

I now wish an auto-submit to happen on the page to login the user.

I have tried using the <body onload="this.form.submit();"> but of course this results in a loop as it is looking for a <form action> to process!

Can therefore SA do the page auto-submit?

OK got it...
delete the goto on the Insert Record behavior and have an Authenticate User bahavior on the reg page and voila.
