Reset passwordΒΆ

When a user has forgotten his/her password, a new one may be sent by email if some additional GeoMapFish configuration is provided.

To ensure such an e-mail can be generated, you should add the following configuration in the vars.yaml file:

# SMTP configuration could be already there if needed by other feature
    ssl: true
    user: <username>
    password: <password>
    starttls: false

    # Used to send a confirmation email
    email_subject: New password generated for GeoMapFish
    email_body: |
        Hello {user},

        You have asked for a new password,
        the newly generated password is: {password}

        Sincerely yours
        The GeoMapFish team

If the SMTP host ends with a colon (:) followed by a number, and there is no port specified, that suffix will be stripped off and the number interpreted as the port number to use.

Replace the value by a working SMTP server name.
