I've just updated my ERL to v.1.4.1 and I've spotted what appears to be a minor bug.
If I enter an invalid password when logging into the v1.4.1 GUI I get the error message "Undefined property: UBNT\App\Api\Edge::$writable. The username or password you entered is incorrect." with everything after the "The" pushed down onto a second line and mostly hidden behind the unsername text box.
Is anyone else seeing this issue or has something just got messed up on my installation ?

Error message is misleading. I really though I had done something very bad to the file system regarding file permission or existence of files. Something clear such as "Incorrect ID and PWD combination" would be welcome. Thanks for all the progress on GUI and Wizards

According to the developers, it has been fixed BUT, the firmware that will include the fix is not released yet to the public as it is still in testing phase (alpha I believe).
I don't understand why it's killing you though? It's not a big deal.

Yeah as mentioned above this is already fixed and the fix will be in the next release, which is currently in alpha testing and you could give it a try if interested.

Considering I am locked out of my router, it is a big deal. This isn't at a home location. It's at a business. A business that we are wanting to use these devices for clients, but it is not looking ideal.

Just to clarify, the issue discussed above is a cosmetic issue with the error message, i.e., more specifically, when user enters the wrong username/password, the error message should be "The username or password you entered is incorrect." but instead it's showing "blah blah blah The username or password you entered is incorrect.". It does not affect the login functionality though.
If there is a bug that is causing the user to be locked out of the router, then we would need to look into and address it of course, so please provide more details on the issue. Thanks.

Note that "root" login is disallowed by default, so in this case it is treated as incorrect username/password, which triggers that error message. It is not recommended to login as "root" directly and you can use "sudo" to execute privieged commands (or get a root shell).

I understand that root must be reserved for obvious reasons. I was, never the less allowed to create a user named "root" in the gui. I had no indication that this was forbidden until I tried to login as user "root" and was not allowed.

If you create a root user you should be able to login with it.
Ok, I've been corrected that the UI still won't allow it (I'm a CLI guy). I was referring to ssh and even then you need to configure ssh to allow it.
configure set service ssh allow-root commit save exit

Thanks for the clarification. I don't have an explicit need for a user named root. I deleted the account and created another called something else. Problem solved.
