In DreamFactory 1.6.10, I’ve noticed a bug in the admin console’s user page with regards to manually setting a user’s password. When first creating the user (so, on a new user), the console totally ignores the password that you manually specify, and instead uses the Display name that you specify as the default password.
This is obviously something that could be easily missed, since the password column isn’t shown by default, and even when it is, the password is only shown right after you create or change it, otherwise the field is blank for what I assume are security purposes.
Going back in and editing that same user’s details, if you try to set the password then, it will stick as it should. Also, if you create a user programmatically by using the createUsers() REST method, it will keep the password you specify. So, I’m thinking there’s a bug in how the admin console deals with giving passwords to newly created users, it just seems to be ignoring the fact that you want to manually set it or something.
I hope this can be fixed in the next release!
