HowTo: Edit ALL passwords in database to remove auto logon

HowTo: Edit ALL passwords in database to remove auto logon

Postby PIGCH » Thu Sep 13, 2012 11:21 am


I find it very annoying and sometimes even destructive that each and every entry is created as autologon!
Once my feature request in this matter is published (approved by moderator) I'll link to it here and I was glad if you supported that request.
edit: here is the link: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=74755

All support was able to suggest me was to manually edit each and every single of my 300++ passwords to disable auto logon.
As that is simply ridiculous I found a better way. Hope this helps others!!

- make a backup copy of your *.pws password database
- EXPORT the whole database (unencrypted!) to MyDatabase.xml
- open MyDatabase.xml with any text editor (notepad, wordpad, ...)
- hit CTRL-H (search and replace) and replace AutoSubmitAfterLoading="true" (please note: there is a single space after "true" which is to be replaced too) by "" (nothing, empty string, simply leave lower box completely empty)
- save MyDatabase.xml
- import MyDatabase.xml into SP, overwriting all old entries.

Best regards,

Hello, we will be considering this feature to disable autologin to the next version.
