New features and considerations

Adding a log registry to store failed login attempts

When a user failed 3 times his login to ProcessMaker, a log with this information is saved in the loginFailed.log file with the following information:

  • Date
  • Use information.
  • IP address from where the user is trying to access.
  • Workspace name.
  • Browsers and their versions.

For instance, the following information could be stored.

2014-07-02 16:55:22 | Many failed authentication attempts for USER: admin | IP: | WS: dmuz | Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/35.0.1916.153 Safari/537.36

This feature is included inside the Enhanced Login plugin, however to see this log detail it is necessary to apply the hotfix.
