How to enable password reset in the login screen

on 3/6/13, 10:42 PM 3,379 views

There is an option in general setting that says

Enable password reset from Login page

I have it checked but I don't see anything new in the login page

there is something else I'm missing???

Please respect the FAQ for the title of your question. Also there no question at all. Please reformulate or I will delete the question

No problem - I just converted it from an Answer to Comment.

login to openerp with your username and password, at the top right menu, click on preferences, click on buttton change password in wizard.

or with rights settings, in menu settings/users/users/user_to_change_password enter new password in field "define password".


when you login then you are not any more at the login screen/page ~.~

Hi, with v7 uptodate,

in menu settings/configuration/general settings/ in page section portal access, checked box Enable password reset from Login page and apply

the button reset your password is present on the right of the password box of connexion.

But when I click on the button, nothing else than a message at the top of the login page : openerp webclient error.

But I believe that to use this functionnality, you should configure server mail and account mail for user in openerp...

I just installed today's(21-03-2013) trunk and it's working Now a reset password link is shown in the login screen.

Now when you select the database the web server changes the url ex: And load the modules installed in that database, before the log in.
