auth0.changePassword always returns OK even when user is not found

change-password

#1

Both SDK method auth0.changePassword and Postman request to:
https://***.auth0.com/dbconnections/change_password
with body:
{
“client_id”:"***",
“connection”:"***",
“email”:"***@gmail.com"
}

always return successful message: We’ve just sent you an email to reset your password.
On the other hand in Logs I see that there was an error and mail actually wasn’t sent:
Type: Failed Change Password.
Description: User does not exist.

What can I do to distinguish in frontend side between successful and failed password reset?
