When a user attempts to self service password reset by using the 'Can't access your account?' link in Crowd, after the user has entered username and clicked continue, no email is sent.
The strange thing is that if a Crowd administrator resets a users password an email is sent to the user.
Why is Crowd not sending an email for a user self service password reset, but is sending an email when triggered by the adminstrator?
I've looked at the logs and can't see anything.
Can you check if this user belong to the crowd-user group? And if this user has an e-mail registered in Crowd?
We can enable the DEBUG in the e-mail, so you can have the user trying to reset the password and you can keep an eye on the logs. This documentation is a Confluence one, but you can use for Crowd as well:
I hope this helps.
Thanks William. I'll get that to our sysadmins and they can arrange for the restart of Crowd with the email debug on.
The users aren't in the crowd-user group, but they aren't in the test env and that is working fine.
Thanks for your help. I'll run with debug and see what happens.
I have exactly the same issue. As administrator and can click on "Reset Password" and users will receive the email, but they won't if they request it themselves via the "Can't access..." option.
