I tried resetting my password. After writing my email address in the email textbox, I hit the send Email button. And it says that if my account is associated with my email, then it will send the instructions.. But even after that I didnt't recieve any such mail.
P.S. I have already used this method to reset my hipchat password in the past
Hi there, Zeeshan.
Since you mentioned that you have performed this method to reset your password in the past, it could mean that
Can you please confirm if you are an admin of the HipChat instance? If yes, may I know if it is possible for you to reproduce the issue and provide the following information to here?
Let me know how it goes on your end.
Would like to mention that
Can't access the following points since Im not the admin
Thanks for the confirmation. Since nothing much can be determined from the front-end, is it possible to have the HipChat admin involved here to gather the information to further troubleshoot the issue?
Feel free to let me know if you are more comfortable to have a support ticket created to discuss this issue further. Thanks.
Thanks for the support.
It happened because my account was deactivated somehow.
However the message I got at the time of resetting the password shouldn't have been that way. Instead it should have shown that my account was not in active state.
We can close the discussion now.
You are welcome. Glad to know that we were able to determine the root cause of the issue. So, this is an interesting point:
Instead it should have shown that my account was not in active state.
We want to (as much as possible) avoid any possible attempt to hack through accounts on HipChat, hence the reason why the message seem vague to confuse hackers to think that they will be able to receive the email in the first place.
The best method to troubleshoot this is to always reach out to the HipChat administrator to determine the status of your account. If needed, we will then further troubleshoot it to see what is happening in the backend.
I hope that makes sense. Feel free to let me know if you have any other concerns. Thanks.
