IP Login without the IP...

So I have a unique scenario where I need to autologin users based on a secret key. The accounts are just to allow us to have a basic audit trail of the user completing courses etc, and security is not of an issue. The fact we are auto creating the users and assigning them a special key and then sending the user an email with a link to take a course for instance with this key we want them to be auto logged in, they take the course and finish.

Is it possible to display the IP Requirement of IP Login and just use the secret key side?

Many thanks

You could potentially set IP login to the complete range of IPs.
But it is user based. So you will still need to set that up for every user you want to give access.

If you want to have a generic solution not connected to the user, then no, IP Login is not the solution for you.

No that wouldn't work since they can be from around the world.

I ideally need auto login via secret param but not IP restricted. Ok I'll create my own.

Thanks anyway!
