Automated Self Service Password reset for SBM

Has anyone used webservices or the API to create a self service password reset option for SBM? The user selects Forgot Password on a front end page and gives the loginID. The process sends an email to the email on file matching that ID with a link having a token for verification to a page that resets the users password and emails it back to them. I am not fluent in webservices or .net but I was going to attempt this project if no one else has already done it. It seems rather straight forward.

Hi Terry, unless you want to use web services, there is standard SBM functionality that you can use.

In SBM System Administrator go to Options > Settings - then select the 'External User' tab. On the bottom of that tab there is an option to "Enable Password Request" - select that.

The URL to the password request form is below:
You can add a link to that URL from the login screen and when the user goes to that page they will need to enter their loginid and email address and the system will email them a single use password.
