How to remove the security checkbox "I am a human"

This PhenixID Solution Document (PSD) is written for PhenixID Server.

This article describes how to remove the security checkbox "I am a human" (not recommended).

The reader should have some basic knowledge about PhenixID Server.

Overview

Version 2.x of PhenixID Server introduces the security checkbox, "I am a human".

PhenixID strongly recommends to keep this feature as is.

If the need is to have this feature disabled, follow the steps below.

Instruction

We will make changes to the file config/phenix-store.json, so please make sure that you have a recent copy/backup of this file.

The parameter and value used to disable the checkbox is:

"enableHoneypot" : "false"

This needs to be set on the respective authenticators used, for instance /config and /otpenrollment (see example below).

To make the change, please login to PhenixID Configuration Manager.

Click on the Tab “Advanced”.

Click on the pencil beside “Authentication - HTTP” and add the parameter to the section "configuration".

When done press "Stage changes" and then "Commit changes".

This change will not require a restart.

Example for /config:

"AUTHENTICATORS" : [ {
    "alias" : "config",
    "name" : "DefaultInternalAuthenticator",
    "configuration" : {
      "successURL" : "/config/",
      "enableHoneypot" : "false",
      "translationKey" : "login.messages.information.body.cm",
      "headingtranslationKey" : "login.messages.information.header.cm"
    },
    "id" : "configdefault"
  } ],
