Hi Rick,

2 questions about USM.

  • Any plans to add some sort of password complexity requirement method to this class?
  • Any plans to add support for putting the user table in SQL?

I'll roll my own for both but don't want to go down that road if you have any plans for enhancement.

TIA

Not at the moment.

You can (and should) just subclass the wwUserSecurity class anyway and implement the custom user retrieval logic. I think most users are unlikely to use a plain user table and instead map directly to a customer table or whatever in an application.

So it's more or less by design to not supply anything beyond the basic easily editable FoxPro table.

Password complexity - other than minimum password length no. Again easy to implement as part of the authentication method you pass username and password to.

Thanks. I figured as much but thought it was worth asking the question.
