ODK Collect: When asked for username/password why the field username at app settings is not updated?

Hi,

When we get an authenticated form from the server using ODK Collect it will
ask for username/password, but the username settings will be empty (and the
forms we receive in the Aggregate will not be identified by USERNAME
field).

Can something be done regarding this, maybe on the next release of ODK
Collect?

Thanks,
piqo

Hi Piqo,

Probably a bug. Please file at
https://github.com/opendatakit/opendatakit/issues. Code contributions
are welcome!

Hi Yaw

We are also facing the same issue, our client wants to get the User Name
with every form but the user name by which a person logs in doesnt come in
the data unless the same is not filled manually into settings. Not with
this the issue is that the surveyor can change the name at any time and put
any junk data making tracking hard. By when do you think this could be
resolved.

Also pls tell us how we can contribute to the code

Hi Raman,

There is no ETA on when this will be resolved by the core team. If it
is important to you, your best bet is to write the code and submit it
as a contribution.

The code is at http://github.com/opendatakit/collect. Fork it, create
a feature branch, write the code in the branch and submit a pull
request.

Alternatively, if you have one enumerator per device, you can always
include deviceid in the form.

Thanks,

Yaw

I don't understand -- you can configure each of your devices with a
specific gmail account and/or the username and password used for submitting
data, then use the admin settings to protect and hide the general settings
screen so these values cannot be changed. This avoids the user having to
enter their username and password when submitting data (though anyone using
the device would have that username and be able to submit as that username).

This would allow you to use the properties preloading feature to populate
the configured gmail account or username into the form when it is collected.

See https://opendatakit.org/help/form-design/examples/#Property_values

An enhanced, more robust, solution would also record the device id of the
device using this same mechanism; your field managers would then maintain
their own registry of who is assigned which device, and that registry can
be used to correct or cross-check the username.

If you have your own ODK Aggregate server, the database tables record the
created-by user, which will be the user that authenticated with the server.
We don't expose that in our reports or exports. It is more of a data-audit
feature.
