[PASSWORD] string not being replaced

7 months 4 weeks ago #305374 by MarlonFungai
I am using a code Auto Action to send an SMS with the user password after registration. The site does not require email (I have code that replaces the email with [username]@domain.com thanks to another forum thread). Now the site sends the SMS without a problem but the [password] substitution doesn't work. I tried [username] and that works fine so I think from what you have said I am using the wrong trigger. I have used a few triggers and I have just tried onAfterUserRegistration with no luck. The other thing is CB is generating passwords they are not being entered at registration.

You'd use onAfterUserRegistration for frontend registrations and onAfterNewUser for backend registrations. The [password] substitution should work fine for both but may not be the case if using generated passwords, but if not try directly accessing the user object with [var1_password].

Accessing the password through [var1_password] worked a charm. Thank you.
