Specify maximum number active CAPTCHAs

Karla Marsh
EFT

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Enterprise v 7.4.6 and later

EFT v8.0 and later store Advanced Properties in a JSON file. When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings become part of the EFT configuration files.) For a more on how to use advanced properties, and a spreadsheet of the advanced properties, please refer to the "Advanced Properties" topic in the help for your version of EFT.

DISCUSSION

In Workspaces, occasionally, a user is unable to read the CAPTCHA text, and will refresh to try again. This advanced property specifies the number of CAPTCHA retries allowed.  (100 is the default before setting the advanced property value.)

In EFT v8 and later, add the advanced property to the advancedproperties.json file in EFT's \ProgramData\ directory.

{
"MaxCaptchaInstances": "150"
}

In versions prior to v8, set the registry below to the desired maximum CAPTCHAs.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.4\

Type: DWORD

Value name: MaxCaptchaInstances

Default Value: 100

Minimum Value: 0

Maximum Value: 4294967295

Cached: yes

Backup/Restore: yes

(There is no 32-bit version because there is no 32-bit OS supported.)
