Managing User Passwords

Overview

You can reset a user's password in three ways:

  • You can change the password for the user. If the site is configured with password rules (i.e., minimum length), the initial password you assign must obey those password rules.
  • You can send the user a password reset link. The link is valid for 24 hours.
  • You can force the user to change their password at the next login. This action cannot be undone.

 

Prerequisites

  • An administrator account for the site. Administrators have full permissions to the specific site.
