My question is simple, where does a client change his/her password after signing up (registering)?
I've installed odoo 9 (on Ubuntu) and installed the website app.
- The Sign in page doesn't show a forgot username / password option
- If the user logs in, the app has a "username -> My Account -> Your Details -> change" button, where the user can see address, e-mail ...etc. but no change password button.
Am I overlooking an option somewhere? If that option doesn't exist, is it possible to add such a button in xml, that would not be overwritten with the nightly builds?
SOLVED (see below) ... That's only useful in a closed environment, and if you have only a few users ... if you have a shop or 1000 users, it doesn't make sense for your clients to have to ask an administrator to change their password. Surely there must be a way for clients to get a "reset password e-mail" sent to the address that they used to create their account so they can reset the password themselves. And Why would an administrator want to know peoples' passwords in the first place? Only 1 person should know the password ... the owner of the account ...
after much digging in the repository and searching for keywords ... I found this thread ... https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-enable-password-reset-in-the-login-screen-4788
Basically the password reset function is disabled by default for the portal (website).
To activate the password reset button ...
go to settings in the top menu
in the URL for your odoo system (https://mydomain.TLD:8088/web#menu_id=86&action=78)
Add ?debug to your URL (https://mydomain.TLD:8088/web?debug#menu_id=86&action=78)
click on general settings -> Enable password reset from Login page
click apply at the top of the page
remove the ?debug from your URL.
