Login temporarily blocked

Post by cpap3 »

Hi! When a member's login is temporarily blocked because of wrong attempts, how long is temporarily?

Ok, got it. The blockage time is set under User Management>Permission Groups under Access Settings for the relevant group.

However, there is another setting under Settings>Alert Settings>Incorrect Login Attempts, and also a Notification called 'Login blocked by invalid trials'.

What triggers that, and how long is that temporary blockage?

Dear cpap3,

Indeed this can be done under User management > Permission Groups > modify, however there was a bug here (maybe not in the version you are using, but the time wasn't working) which will be solved in the next release.

Under Settings > Alert Settings > Incorrect Login Attempts, you can specify whether the admin gets an alert. See home > Number of member alerts or Alerts > Member alerts.

Under Personal > E-Mail Notifications > Member alerts > Member blocked by exceeding login attempts, you can specify whether you get an email notification.

Well hope that answers your questions.

Good luck using cyclos!
