If a Password is provided, the code compares $row->{Password} to $row->{Confirm}, and crashes.

  • If using bulk registration it doesn't make sense to confirm both passwords, so temporarily disable confirmation.
  • Use of the Password column is not documented.
  • Other validations are logged as fail, but actually ignored. User is still registered if minimum password length test fails.

See Support.Question1064

Ugh. The ManageDotPm::verify_bulkRegister tests don't really validate much. No checking that users were actually created, or that the log was created without errors.

The issue with ignored validation failures. "return" in a catch block doesn't return to the calling routine, but continues on in-line.
