Self service password reset

The Self Service Password Reset plugin enables end users who are locally authenticated to reset their own passwords.

By default there is a new message and link on the login page to access the reset page. Users are prompted for their username and email address. If the system locates an active record, it generates a temporary password and sends an email to the user with the details. Users who reset their passwords receive a message with the results of the reset request.
Note: This feature works only for locally authenticated users. Users logging in via an SSO solution or an LDAP integration cannot reset their passwords in this fashion since the instance does not know these passwords.

The following functionality is updated with the installation of the Self Service Password Reset plugin:
