Error description

  • Setting the "Remember User ID" checkbox in the IBM Rational
    ClearQuest (CQ) Web 7.1 login panel, would default the cursor to
    jump to the Password field. In CQ Web 8 the cursor goes to the
    User ID field. Users inherently start typing their passwords
    when the form is loaded not realizing that they are typing it in
    cleartext in the username field.  It is a security risk. The
    actual behavior is not consistent. It depends on browser type
    and version.
    
    Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) versions which can see this
    issue include, but not limited to the below:
    
    IE 8.0.6001.18702
    IE 10.0.9200.17089
    IE 10.0.9200.17183
    IE 11.0.9600.16384
    IE 11.0.9600.17420

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.16 and 8.0.1.9.
    In the ClearQuest Web login dialog window, the cursor will now
    set the focus to the Password field when "Remember User ID" is
    checked.
