Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRSTUDIO-1198) Can't add a password if the 'Save password' checkbox is not checked
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2018 12:24:00 GMT
Emmanuel Lecharny created DIRSTUDIO-1198:
--------------------------------------------

             Summary: Can't add a password if the 'Save password' checkbox is not checked
                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-1198
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-1198
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M14
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny


The new version stores password in a keystore, which is very good from a security POV, compared
to the previous version.

However, the UI could be improved, as it's impossible to type the password if the 'Save password'
checkbox is not checked and the Password Keystore preference is configured to require the
storage of passwords in a keystore.

Typically, I would expect that the password can be entered, but not stored at all, with a
warning message informing you about it. That would be a 'temporary' password, usable until
you quit Studio. (this is just a suggestion, the idea with this ticket is to open a discussion
abiut this feature).
