#46 new enhancement

Add a password reset feature for internal authentication

Reported by: rjl Owned by: rjl
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.1.0
Component: PHP scripts Version: 1.0.0 RC5
Severity: normal Keywords: reset password internal authentication


When Maia's internal authentication method is used, and a user forgets his password, we can't just e-mail him his password, since we don't know it--we only store the MD5 hash of his password, so the best we can do is reset it for him to some temporary random value and e-mail this to his primary e-mail address, so that he can change it himself after successfully logging in again.

  • Milestone changed from 1.0.0 RC6 to 1.1.0

This will be best implemented in the new auth procedures of 1.1
