"Forgot Password?" page in confluence sends link to itself

When a user cannot access their account, there is the "Forgot Password" link on the bottom. When that link is clicked and the username entered, it will send an email to the email address of the user. 

For the system I am working with, the link contained by the email is a link back to the "Forgot Password" page.

Why isn't it sending a link to a password reset page? Is there a way I can change this?

It is the latest version of Confluence, not connected with any sort of AD or LDAP.

Did you figure this out? This happenes to my confluence as well.

Are you using Lotus Notes by chance?

I am using Lotus Notes yes. It has worked earlier, but it seems to have stoppet working after we upgraded to a newer version (5.5.6,). Is there a solution for this? By the way, this: "Your activity is currently limited because you've commented, answered or asked a question 1 times in the past 24 hours. These limits apply until you earn 3 points, then you can ask, answer and comment as much as you like." is very annoying!

I did end up solving this. I'll have to take a look back at some of my old work to remember what I did. I'll post an updated answer in the next few days, hopefully.

Hi Kian,


In this case I advise you to raise a ticket on support.atlassian.com as it we will need a investigation to find out what is happening.

We will be happy in assist you on that.

Is there a URL that confluence can hit to change the password for a user?
