  • Spring core: Request new password if you forget

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm now working on a site and should allow the user to request a new password if he has forgotten his password.
    How can I do that?
    Thanks in advance.

    That is a pretty vague request. Some factors that you have to think about is how do you identify the user requesting the new password. There are a ton of ways that you could implement this.

    What I have done in the past is have a link on the login page that would bring the user to a Forgot Password page. The forgot password page would ask the user to identify themselves (usually by giving a username or email address) Then you simply generate the user a new password and make them change the password the first time they login with the auto generated password.

    Hopefully this will get you started in the right direction.
