Name

CookieLogin — allow autologin based on username and password stored in a client cookie

SYNOPSIS

No | Yes

DESCRIPTION

The directive allows Interchange to save users' authentication info (username/password) in a cookie. Cookie expiration time is set by SaveExpire and is renewed each time they log in.

If the login and password information can be read from a cookie, then users can be logged in to the site automatically as they visit it.

DIRECTIVE TYPE AND DEFAULT VALUE

Catalog directive

EXAMPLES

Example: Enabling CookieLogin

CookieLogin 1

NOTES

To cause the cookie to be generated originally, mv_cookie_password and/or mv_cookie_username must be set to a true value. The former causes both username and password to be saved; the latter just the username.

For a complete discussion on cookies, see cookie glossary entry.
