Password generator utility

Recommended Posts

I'd like to use the password generator but our password requirements include the need for at least 1 capital letter and 1 special character (as well as being 8 characters long). Is there a way to achieve this?

Hi Keith,

There are some password policies that are available under the System->Settings.

I haven't confirmed yet if the password generator takes these into consideration. I will try to give it a test.

A quick test seems to suggest that the password policies are not taken into consideration with the password generator.  I'll check with development to see if this is something that is possibly with the random password generation tool that we use.

Are you talking about the iBridge method for generating a password?

So i spent some time looking at the different password requirements for various tools as have made some changes so that you select a length then optionaly must contain one of the following (Number, Special Character, Upper Case Character).

Does this look like it would cater for your requirements?

Yes that looks like exactly what we need :)

Is this something that can be pushed out relatively quickly? We are in the process of trying to automate password resets for SAP and whilst we could generate the pssword on the SAP side I think this would give us greater flexibility and some advantages in terms of communication. 

Thanks for looking a this.

@Trevor Killick 

I'm trying to use the password generator and as part of the BPM update the timeline with it as per the demo example done by @Steven Boardman. I'm assuming I do this by just having an automated step to update the timeline manually and pass in the &[global["integration"]["password"]], however when I do the the result I get is "Undefined". Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I'm also wondering if it is possible to include this email variable in an email template so we can send an email to the customer with their password?

Can you post a screen grab of your Integration Node configuration like this please:

You can use it in an email template but you will need to store it in the request somewhere like a custom value first then use that custom value in your email template and then set the custom value back to empty after the email node.

@Trevor Killick to be clear, the password generated is being passed out to our test web service just fine. Its only when I update the timeline I get 'undefined' returned.

Great that explains whats happening so you have a field in the Request section called integration this is the default value given as the place where the integration results are returned to, every time you add a new integration node it effectively overwrites this. One way to fix your issue is rename integration in your HTTP Call Integration node something like integrationHTTP and then the password field should be written to the timeline.

Hopefully this is the cause of what you are seeing.

Sorry @Trevor Killick I must be doing something wrong here. I have changed the reference as you advised but am now getting an error which seems to imply I haven;t changed the reference from "Integration" but I have done so in both cases (the password generater and the web call).

So when you changed integration to integrationpassword it doesn't update the in use references to this so you can see i added what should be the correct update text under the first line you had. If you make sure integration is changed to integrationpassword everywhere you specify the password value it should start working.
