Reminder queries (... or what is my frequent fly number?)
Staff Blogs November 17, 2008 By Julio Camarero Staff
I started working for Liferay as a Core developper around two months ago and wanted to use this first post also to say hello to all the people I still don't know from the community, welcome everybody and thank Jorge, Alberto, Brian and Nate for all their support.
From version 5.2 we'll have a new functionality in the portal! It is called "Reminder Queries" and it will be used as a second security mechanism when a user forgets his password. (You may have seen this functionality somewhere else before in portals like Google or Yahoo...)
When this functionlity is enabled:
- the user will have to provide an answer to a question he had chosen before in order to receive a new password. (What is your frequent fly number? what is your library card number? ... )
- Question and answer can be modified through Control panel --> my account
- Users have to choose a question the first time they log into the portal
- Questions are configured by a property in portal.properties for the portal and every organization can define its own questions in different languages in a new section in control panel.
