I had a trial instance of confluence+Jira and one feature I really liked was that I could create a new user and the system would email them with a link to reset their password.
We have now set up a confluence only instance and it looks like I must enter the password for every user I create. This is a bit more cumbersome and leaves me with only two real options:
I don't really like either of those options. Is there a way to make confluence only act more like the jira installation where I can just enter a username and email, and it will notify them and make them set a password immediately?
In Confluence 4.2 you can invite users sending them a registration URL. Would that solve the problem?
You can invite new users to the site by sending them a signup URL. This option is available in both public and private signup modes. When someone visits the URL in a browser, a Confluence signup screen will appear.
