When importing PPSKs, I've successfully created my CSV file. I left the password column blank to generate random PPSKs. Is there a way to tell it to create PPSKs of a specific length?

I'm afraid it defaults to the max (63 characters) and I have yet to find a way around that.

Noted from the HiveManager Help file:

From HiveManager 3.3r2, you do not have to create text strings for passwords one by one when importing manually created private PSK users. If you leave the password fields empty, HiveManager automatically generates them for you. The generated passwords are the maximum length of 63 characters and are composed of the character types—letters, digits, special characters—defined for the user group to which the users are assigned.

I was hoping that by 5.1r5 that option had arrived. Oh well, I'll just have excel do the work.

Yeah, that snippet from the help file is odd in stating a very old version. But even on the 6.x code, I still see no way to do this.

Usually when the help system states an old version like that it is indicating that "Starting in version X.XrX, this feature became available".
