BulkResetPassword fails to display any completion message if you change more than 3 or 4 passwords at a time. Error reporting does not work with multiple updates.

Attempting to reset more than a couple of passwords results in a blank screen and a Page Cannot Be Displayed error. The password change e-mails ARE sent.

Problem is that TWiki::OopsException is being called with ALL the change information in the $message. This exceeds the maximum length of the GET parameter area and results in invalid page, possibly also Apache malformed header for script error.

Rough solution is to replace detail in $message with just a list of users when doing bulk registration. Here is a rough change to lib/TWiki/UI/Register.pm starting at line 486 with added lines flagged in comments--

    # Collect all messages into one string
    my $message = '';
    my $good = 1;
    my $user_count = 0; 	# added
    my $user_list = '';		# added
    foreach my $userName (@userNames) {
        $user_count++;		# added
        unless ( $user_list eq '' ) { $user_list .= ", "; } # added
        $user_list .= "$userName"; #added
        $good = $good &&
          _resetUsersPassword( $session, $userName, $introduction, \$message );
    my $action = '';
    if ( $isBulk ) {	#added
        	# replace message with user list
        	$message = "Changed $user_count passwords: $user_list";

Error handling/reporting logic appears to have been designed for a single update. If you have multiple updates, success and errors are NOT be reported correctly.

This is growing some months old, and Bulk code were touched a few times since.

Is this still a problem with 4.1.0?

No feedback, so discarding under 30 day rule.


Summary BulkResetPassword fails with more than 3 passwords; error reporting flawed.
