Use an option argument so that a user’s password does not have to be updated whenever a change is made to other parts of the user data.
- [Instructor] We've almost completed our discussion…of user authentication.…We've been able to store encrypted passwords in a database,…have users log in, and check to see if a password matches,…we're able to protect pages, make sure users are logged in,…and we're able to log out.…So what topic is there left?…Well, there's minor detail in the fact…that we don't always want to update the password…in the database,…and I want us to address that in this movie.…Let me demonstrate to explain.…Here I am, logged in to the staff area.…
I'm going to click on Admins.…We want to create a new admin.…We know that we always want to provide a password…when we're creating that admin,…and it is required, our validations require it,…or it won't let us create this admin.…However, when we go to edit a user,…you'll notice that we don't see their password here,…their password is left blank.…It's encrypted in the database so there's no way we could…display the password to them here.…But what if we wanted to make a change to this record?…
