Hi folks, I have a phonegap app that communicates with the openerp server, I want to implement the forgot password functionality in my app some as the forgot password button in the openerp login screen (after enabling this option from the openerp settings). 

Is there's any good way to achieve this?

Ok finally I have done it. I have created the forgot password functionality in my client app. I have made the xmlrpc call to the base res.users's action_reset_password method as:


url: server_url + 'object',

methodName: 'execute',

dataType: 'jsonrpc',

params: [dbname, userId, password, 'res.users', 'action_reset_password', [id]], // id: id of the user whose pass need to be reset

success: function(response, status, jqXHR) {



error: function(response, status, jqXHR) {
