How can a user reset their password if using Confluence with Crowd

I've integrate Crowd with Confluence (and JIRA, Stash, Fisheye, Jenkins) so the a single user/password is configured for a user. However, a user may need to reset their password if they don't remember when logging into Confluence. The user can go to Crowd to reset, but that is not very intuitive, the users should be unaware that Crowd even is running right?

You'll need to be logged in as a local admin (or someone who isn't using the Crowd directory) and navigate to: Administration > User Directories

Then you need to hit "Edit" and check the "Read/Write" box. This way it will allow changes (like password resets) from applications go back and refresh with Crowd. Notice, this example is in "Read Only"

Is your connection to Crowd read/write? Or simply read?

Not sure where that would be configured exactly, but the application link is 2-legged Oauth for both incoming and outgoing authentication. I have the “modify user” and “modify user attributes” permissions enabled in Crowd for the Confluence app.
