How to un-ban a user? #992
I'm the admin for the site, and one of my users has entered in his credentials too many times incorrectly. He's now "banned"
How do I remove this flag so that he is no longer banned?
There's got to be some simple way within the GUI to reset the "banned" flag and re-enable the user. Please advise.
In this case it's not a matter of doing it in advance, the user is already locked out and "banned." Has been for hours. I think 3 password failures is plenty, so how do I un-ban someone who has already had 3 failed attempts ? Please and Thank you…

(#992) If I am not missing anthing it appears that the admn can adjust a field in advanced rto set the number of failures for the ban and the number of seconds to stay banned. It defaults to 3 times and 900 seconds so you need to wait 15 minutes Tim — You are receiving this because you authored the thread.

I logged in 3 times incorrectly, was banned and waited 25 minutes and was able to login. What version are you on?
That does the advanced option of login ban time in seconds have as a value:
You may need to do a mysql update:
select userID, Name, ban, bantime from kimai_users where Name = 'Username';
to check the current values
here's an "easy" workaround to unban a user:
voilà, user unbanned
