Autocomplete on Username Field in User Edit Form #14699

Bug report


Autocomplete in the username field in the user edit form can lead to accidental saving of an incorrect username from that originally stored when the user hasn't been assigned a password - for example when imported without one.

Step to reproduce

Create a user via the API without a password on a domain you have an autocomplete username for.

Observed behavior

For users with no password, on Chrome the username is filled in with the first entry from my autocomplete list replacing the original username.

Expected behavior

It should retain the user's actual username.


MODX version 2.7.1-pl, apache 2.4, mysql 5.5, Chrome (tested on Linux, Mac & Windows.

I'm unclear as to the benefit of having autocomplete on any of the fields in the manager.
I see #6703 for the removal of autocomplete for the title field of resources too but this issue could be a real nuisance for unwary site admins.
