Can no longer reset client passwords

Recommended Posts

I do wonder, if it was intentional or they thought it'd break the mess of client/user system. 

I don't see any value to removing it, when all other passwords for services are still plain text and the hash is stored locally. 

Bizarre, truly bizarre! I'd actually pay to watch whmcs at work! I reckon it'd be nearly as good as Chester Zoo! 

I also don't understand the lack of humility to say "Yeah, we messed up here. This whole idea was terrible and we'll revert back"  I think there's absolutely zero benefit added - users could be sub accounts with access. There's no need to further complicate an already delicate house of cards known as a whmcs database. I've seen more complaints about this than any other half-baked and poorly implemented feature and they seem to still think it's good! I do hope they spend all this extra money on a competent developer! If they hang around the colleges in Milton Keynes they'll probably find an upgrade willing to work Saturdays 🤣

Absolutely tragic state of affairs.

I figured it out!  They want to have bank level security... you see the bank I use for business supports multiple users but I as the account owner can't change the password, security question, or do a password reset.  All I can do is enable or disable a user, yay for me.   I don't even think I can change the email address come to think of it.  Granted, this is probably a good thing for a bank but for WHMCS?

It's the result of not understanding the market anymore, it's why they think selling us extras is adding value to the service! 

Market connect is just a collection of companies willing to pay them commission

I, as a paid WHMCS user, I'm asking a WHMCS representative to comment factually on this situation!

Choose one response:

1) It was a feature asked for by many users.
2) Open a feature request for us to ignore.
3) The new user/client system means it's hard to get right, so no.

How dare you forget the nonsensical platitudes! They work hard copy/pasting them and changing the words! 😛

We've intentionally broken the client/user system. Wildly inappropriate and not well thought out features just cause more work! I think they hope we're going to start selling their incoming webhosting/server packages on market connect to clients, which can be sold to users! 

I'd guess they're moving to the world's most convoluted multi level marketing scheme known to man 🤣

Why won't WHMCS put the ability to set a new client password back into the admin area?

Have it controlled  by an admin permission to limit who can actually do it. That leaves the choice up to the WHMCS administrator/owner.

History has shown, they don't revert decisions regardless of how stupid, poorly implemented and buggy they are perceived by users.

They will forge ahead, continue making awful development decisions and the hired chimps will say how great it is and how they got asked so much.... except in public LOL ... for it!

Now that's an idea.

brian! Left ages ago and is tagged in every other comment asking for help 🙃

as i'm finding whilst reading the backlog of hundreds of threads since my last visit.... thankfully I don't get emails about mentions, so i'm happily going through my whmcs-free life in ignorant bliss... i'll be back in November if I have the time (and inclination!).

they still haven't reversed on this ??? disappointing , but sadly not unexpected.

Why can not this function be made available and controlled by Admin permissions?

feedback to WHMCS, even the requests site

is just pointless

Here looking for a solution to the password reset problem. OMG, I can`t believe there hasn`t been any factual response from a WHMCS staff member or even an attempt for a rollback/fix. WHMCS you really made our lives as Admins harder.

It's not likely being considered. The new tiered owner/user system made it too difficult to formulate a way to keep it, so they removed it under the guise of "security". They alone feel the ability of being able to change a password for an account by a logged in admin is unsafe. 😉

You know, that's probably very near to what happened! Certainly coincided with the timing! 

It's not even difficult to add back yourself, if brian! Had spent 15 mins doing it for people it could have been sold by a certain company for $49  a year 🤣

I wonder how many panicked when he left- I mean I certainly did as he's saved my sanity before but I'm not long for this place now! Anyway, that's me clocking off for NYE have a good one fellas!

I wish it could have the option of resetting their password but then forcing the clients to change their password before allowing to log back in. Because right now im having an issue with a client not able to log in and Password reset emails arent being sent..  However all of the other "suspension, unsuspension etc.. emails are working just fine.

      Good day,
      This has probably already been asked, but I'm struggling to find it.
      The Issue:
      When on mobile (android, chrome) The client wants tries to open the invoice from the email or link sent it takes him to login page, After signing in it goes to the clientarea instead of billing or the invoice itself. Now you try going to invoices or billing it does the exact same you have to login again. Ending up on the client area page again.
      Is there a way to fix this? 
      If there is already a topic on this please link me to it.
      Regards
      Jaco

      After updating with the most recent stable release (8.30.0), I went through my standard testing process to see if anything is no longer working.   I found that the Login As Owner function no longer works and, instead, updates the url to be (URL + #).  
      Is this something that has already been looked into for correction?  Are there any hot fixes that are suggested?

      Hello everyone,
      Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Bascially  after reviewing our video heatmaps we have found loads of drop offs on our checkout page due to potential new customers getting frustrted with having to keep inputting the password and security question IF the checkout form has any errors OR hasnt been filled out with all the required details.
      IF thats the case then the form refreshes and points out the errors. Now what we noiced is that the customer would the fill out OR correct the errors being pointed too and then submit BUT they dont fill out the password OR security question again as (I ASSUME) they think its already present when in fact its been cleared.
      Have seen potential customers going through the checkout form up to 10 times (I know right!) filling out the form and adding in missing OR fields that contain errors. Would be ideal IF they looked at everything and ensured that they filled out everything the first time round. A perfect customer alas thats not the case.
      SO trying to figure out how to keep anything inserted in the password and security answer fields at the very least saved AS they are for the personal fields (name + address) in case there is an error and the page spits out which errors those are. At the very least they wont have to add in those details again (as thats whats making them go round and round in circles!!!)
      Further, it would be great if that can also be applied to the card number and expiry field NOT the cvv tho for abovious reasons...
      I have checked the following files and cannot see where that removal takes place:
      js/jquery.payment.js js/scripts.min.js Also checked the HTML to see if there is any indicators there but cannot find anything. Pretty sure I am misssing something here i.e where the validation uccors maybe thats where those fileds are getting stripped?
      Any pointers to what I am missing OR how to implement that? I was thinking that dding in a class OR additional bootstrap class direct into the HTML field output would help?
