[SOLVED] Alter the generated password

3 weeks 4 days ago #308698 by MarlonFungai
I have been trying this and I am not sure what I am doing wrong but I am still getting 12 characters on password. Is the event onUserRandomPassword a Joomla event? Should I reload the user?

It's not a Joomla event. Be sure you've updated CB to at least 2.3 (recommend latest build release) and updated CB Auto Actions to 7.3.1. Next use the below auto action.

I've confirmed this works fine for adjusting the password length.

It was the latest version on all accounts but I checked again and went through the instructions again and it is still sending me 12 character passwords. Could it be affected by confirmation and approval? I don't have either active now and I have no conditions on the Auto Action.

My tests had confirmation and approval disabled to mimic your usage. Are you registering from frontend or backend? Have you set the reference variables parameter correctly in your auto action? Variable 2 needs to be set as a reference.

There might be something wrong with your site in general as it would seam setting by reference does not work for you. To use reference variables your site has to allow for eval or create_function otherwise it won't be able to pass reference variables. Often people will add eval to disabled_functions, but that won't actually disable it although CB Auto Actions will respect it. It can only actually be disabled using suhosin, which CB Auto Actions again will respect. If you're on PHP 7.2+ then create_function no longer exists. So if both are disabled then reference variables will not work and you won't be able to use this feature to change the length and you'll instead have to replace the password entirely by returning a new randomly generated password. The below might work for that.


Global
Triggers: onUserRandomPassword
Type: Code
User: Automatic
Access: Everybody
Action
Method: PHP
Code:
jimport( 'joomla.plugin.helper' );

return JUserHelper::genRandomPassword( 6 );
Output
Display: return

Have added a feature ticket to add under the reference variables parameter a warning if both eval and create_function are not available.
