Why cannot remember WebGUI login password?

    • Volker is very profound when it comes to password security. Though I never asked, I think he implemented it this way by intention.

      Another reason is that the ExtJS framework does not support it, or definies the passwordfield in an inconvenient way.

      Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    • I don't think it's really easy to add such an functionality to OMV since it uses PAM and not it's own database for accounts. Normally a "remember me" function is written by utilizing a series and token and then store that it in the database, but since there would be no way to use such data against PAM it wouldn't work.
    • My guess would be that he means "save password for later login" in his browser - which isn't supported on the OpenMediaVault WebGUI either.
