The default language configured in this place is the one who is displaying and selected on the login screen, this configuration is set for each workspace.
In ProcessMaker 2.0, an option was added so that users who forget their passwords no longer have to contact an administrator or manager to get a new password. Instead, they can click a link in the login screen to send a new randomly-generated password to their email account.
Note: To make the Forgot Password option available, first ProcessMaker must be configured to connect to an email server.
To enable this option, login as a user such as "admin" who has PM_SETUP permission in his/her role and go to ADMIN > Settings > Login.
To enable user to get new passwords, mark the option Enable Forgot Password. Then, click on Save Settings.
The next time a user logins into ProcessMaker, the Forgot Password link will be displayed in the login screen.
By clicking on Forgot Password, a form will display:
- User: Enter username of the user who wants to login into ProcessMaker.
- Email: Enter that user's email address where a new password will be sent.
If the username and email address match the record of a ProcessMaker user, then an email will be sent to that user with a new randomly-generated password.
Note: It is difficult to recover forgotten passwords, since they are stored as MD5 hashes in the rb_<WORKSPACE>.USERS.USR_PASSWORD field in the database. Instead of trying to crack the MD5 hash, it is recommended to simply generate a new password.
Enabling a Virtual Key
From version 2.0.40 the Virtual Keyboard feature was added to bring more security when users type their passwords at the moment of logging in ProcessMaker. The Virtual Keyboard prevents Keylogger from record all keystrokes pressed on keyboard. Nonetheless, it is possible to use either the computer keyboard or the Virtual Keyboard to type any letter.
Note: The Enable Virtual Key functionality is only available for the uxmodern skin.
How to enable virtual keyboard
Go to ADMIN > Settings > Login and the Login Settings will display on the right side of the window with the new option called Enable Virtual Keyboard:
The Virtual Keyboard has the possibility to type any kind of letters, accent letters, upper and low case letters and characters to give passwords more security.
