This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to configure CAPTCHA in Bitbucket Server
The Bitbucket Server documentation describes how to clear captcha for a user. That option doesn't seem to be displayed when you're using Crowd for user management, however. Is there any solution short of shutting down the whole system and disabling captcha site-wide?
