  • 1.  App dosen't see passwords entered by BP

    Posted 06-27-2022 16:19
    We have a .NET based app that after a recent update BP can no longer login to.

    From testing we can see that BP enters the username into the username field and then enters the password into the password field. When the login button is pressed the message that is returned shows that the application cannot see anything in the password field, as if it is blank - there is a different message that returns if the password is wrong. Spying the fields shows that BP is entering data to the field.

    If we manually type the password into the password field after BP has entered the username, BP can then login and run properly.

    I've tried testing it with a straight paste and individually sent global keys. I've also tried it with the field set as test and as password

    Any suggestions as to what might be happening and how to get around it

    Hello @Alan Lodge - Which version of BP you are using?

    This issue is noticed on multiple application . Please try spying the UN and PW in UIA mode and then check if it work?
    2nd, Please try to send UN,PW by send key.
    these option will most likely resolve your issue.​

    Thanks for the help on this, I had tried UIA mode before but failed.

    So this time I am running with it in External Application Manger mode, spied the field in UIA mode and used send key. Checking the diagnostics its as if there is a hidden field.

    Anyway just a little tweaking and tiding up now

    Hi Alan,

    Not sure if you got this resolved but I had a similar issue when trying to send a file path to a save box.

    I got around this by using  Activate Application-> Focus on Element (AA) -> Send GSKs

    Ok I worked out what the changes were that were made to the application.
    They had set all password fields to reject paste operations.

    So the fix was to use GSK to send the password a key at a time.

    Thanks to all for the help
