Forgotten Password

Dec 16, 2009 at 5:45 PM

Is there a way in for a user to be emailed their password if they have forgotten it?

Passwords are one-way hashed and so cannot be converted back to plain text.

However, there could be a process where a password is reset -- by giving a user a temporary password to log in with, and allowing them to change their password.

But this type of process doesn't currently exist in BE.NET ... sorry :(

Hi Ben, yes it would be good if there was a reset my password link, which emailed the user with a temporary password.  Also it would be useful if the administrators could set a new password for an individual user in the admin tools.  Thanks very much!

Is there any time scale for this to be implemented?

Is there any scripts available to set a hashed password for the user to then login and change it.
