Per Session Password access
« on: August 12, 2020, 01:13:56 am »
Have had a look through the forums and surprisingly not found anything pertaining to this that i can see.

Am looking to use the password of the active user for tools.  Active user is radius auth.

I see there is currently no way to use a password unless manually entered (via input fields or in custom attributes). 
Custom attributes no good as changes on a pre user basis - and I see no per user attributes.  Also Plain text - not ideal
Input fields - Clunky - have to enter every time.

Is there any way that the Password entered at login could be saved to a callable field (like input feilds are) that can be called globally.
If not - can there be an option to activate an Input field for a global password at login (this would need to be resettable in the session also - as you may get it wrong, or would need to call radius again to auth - so as you know you have the right one)

Either way - I would presume that if required these fields could be encrypted until used - making them no less secure that input fields as it stands.

Any help appreciated - if more info required - let me know.

Another possible way could be cache for "password" type input fields - password can be stored if user decide so and password store is allowed by administrator. It can be for session duration only or persistent between sessions.

Not sure if this fits here but I would also like to display a dashboard without logging in or have a password that saves session state just on a dashboard (so it can be autolaunched via a script etc).

My main use for this is to display the network maps in a dashboard so we can see status of all network maps, etc.
