ReAuthentication on Data Entry and on Data Updates

Post by FrankOne » Jul 08, 2019 11:47 am

I am looking for some direction of how to add re-authentication prior to the adding of each bug (clicking the Submit Issue button) and prior to the update of an existing bug (clicking on the Update Information button).

Basically, I want to enter all the data in the form in the add or update scenario, when clicking the appropriate button to add or update have the software prompt the user for re-authentication prior to posting the data to the system and ONLY post the data if the re-authentication is successful. If the re-authentication is unsuccessful for 3 attempts then the account is locked or marked as inactive.

Any direction or help would be GREATLY appreciated!

As far as I know, this is not default available so you would need to create a plugin for this.

Why would you need this? mantis does check if the user has access when selecting the option. If not, error message is raised. :mrgreen:

Cas,

In certain regulated industries, electronic signatures must be used when working with an item or issue.
The addition of this ability would make this product useful for many other opportunities outside of software bugs.
Just checking/verification of the User Id and Password at the time of login is not enough.
The user must also be verified before any new data or any updates are posted to the database.

I would like to use this application, however, I am not a programmer and would need some guidance as to how to create and add this add-in to do this functionality.

I am seeking help in this area.
