How to use openerp '../auth_signup/reset_password' service?

I have enable the reset password setting in openerp. And found that a button appears at the login screen enabling user to reset password. Inspecting this button, I found that this button is using a xml rpc call service to send a email with reset password link.. 

self.rpc("/auth_signup/reset_password", { dbname: db, login: login }).done(function(result) {

                self.show_error(_t("An email has been sent with credentials to reset your password"));


So I wanted to use this service in my client app, to enable the user to reset password same as the openerp does, so I have written the following code:


url: 'http://openerp.example.com/auth_signup/reset_password',

methodName: 'call',

dataType: 'jsonrpc',

// params: [dbname, 'sperson3', ''],

params: {'dbname':dbname, 'login':'user1', 'context':{}},

success: function(response, status, jqXHR) {




error: function(response, status, jqXHR) {





But this always returning in error. am I doing something wrong? can we use the service like this. Please help me for this.
