Identity Apps 4.7 - Forgotten Password Link


for long time we used a self-made Forgotten Password Application with OTP and Special verifications. All the time we could not configure the forgotten Password link via Configupdate, as the URI there requires ../jsps/pwdmgt/ForgotPassword.jsp and I will not be able to save settings if this will not be conform to the URI expected by MF. This is not very helpful, but we had the option in /IDMProv to provide the URL there and this was working fine.

So now with 4.7. Identity Apps this option is gone. I was hoping that in this situation configupdate would be less restrictive, but I was wrong.
So my question: Has anybody out there an idea how to get the forgot Password link configured to a simple URL in the format Https://some.domain/context/something.html. It would be possible to hack login.jsp, but honestly this is my last resort.

And to prevent answers like "Use SSPR": NO SSPR is not an option at this time.

Any help appreciated - thanks in advance.
