Security Assist Email Encrypted Password

Security Assist Email Encrypted Password


I just bought Security Assist 2 and trying to test the Email Encrypted Password functionality but it is coming up with some errors.

I have a page with a text field to be used to collect the email that the reset password link will be sent to and the server behaviour is triggered from this page by clicking the submit email button.

I have an error page if the email is not in the database and a success page if the email is in the database. Once a user has entered the email address and click the button, the error page is shown even though the email address is valid and is in the database.

I haven't found any tutorial as to how to use the server behaviour. The tutorial available is scanty and not into depth.

Can someone help me out with this?

PS: I don't want to use WA generated pages. I want to use the Email encrypted password as a stand alone utility.

There is no tutorial that explains how to set this up, it is actually quite complex. I would recommend generating the page through the wizard to use the page the wizard generates as a guide.

With encrypted passwords, there are 2 parts:

1) Create a form that the user enters their email address in, the Add the Security Assist Email Encrypted password behavior. In the Email Encrypted password behavior make sure to go to the email object tab and enter the correct SMTP Server information.

the email that is sent will include a link to the return page that is set on the general tab.

2) On the return page, you will need to create a form with a field for entering the email address, and the new password, and to confirm the password.

add the Security Email Encrypted password return behavior to lookup the user record based on the retune link.

And you will need to add an update record behavior to up[date the user record.
