I would to use the new Perspective key events (New Feature: Perspective Key Events) feature to allow operators to log in using RFID badge from anywhere in Perspective, without navigating to the login page first.
Right now, I would be able to recognise the known RFID HID keystroke pattern by regex, and call
system.perspective.login, which will take me to the idP login page. Another tap will log in.
Ideally, I would like to call
system.perspective.login(badgenumber) from the key event, which would ask the idP to attempt to log in using the supplied badge which has already been read. I know the login function deliberately does not support a provided username and password, but can this work as a feature request?
If there is another way to allow login using a badge without first navigating to the login page, I’m keen to hear.
