  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Setting the Remember User ID checkbox in the CQ Web 7.1 login
    page, 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.
    If you cancel on login and then click Log in again multiple
    times, the cursor will appear alternating between Login ID and
    Password field.

    In the ClearQuest Web login dialog window, the cursor
    defaults to the User ID field even if "Remember User ID" is
    checked.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.10 and 8.0.1.3.
    
    In the ClearQuest Web login dialog window, the cursor will
    now set the focus to the Password field when "Remember User
    ID" is checked.
