#693 closed Bug (fixed)

Visit generator should ask for user confirmation before generating lots of fake data

Reported by: willemijns Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: Piwik 0.5
Component: Core Keywords:
Cc: Sensitive: no

Description (last modified by matt)

The visit generator UI currently requires Super User access, but this is not enough, as it is available through a simple link in the API page. Instead, the UI should warn the user and ask for confirmation when clicking on the visit generator link. Once data has been generated, it is not possible to remove this fake data, which might corrupt historical reports and cause data issues.
