Sending password change email instead of verification email for a new user - Latest

I saw a post that was dated 2021 where it was suggested to create a hook but i dont see it in the latest version. how do i send password change email automatically when i manually signup a user?

Hey there @Jaisantosh !

You can achieve this using a Post Registration Action and the /dbconnections/change_password endpoint of the Authentication API. An example Action might look like:

exports.onExecutePostUserRegistration = async (event, api) => {

const axios = require('axios');

  const domain = '{your_domain}';

  // Function to send password change email
  const sendPasswordChangeEmail = async (email) => {
    try {
      await`https://${domain}/dbconnections/change_password`, {
        email: email,
        connection: 'Username-Password-Authentication' //or whichever database connection you are using
      }, {
        headers: {
          'Content-Type': 'application/json'
      console.log('Password change email sent successfully.');
    } catch (error) {
      console.error('Error sending password change email:', error);
      throw error;

  // Execute the function
  try {
    await sendPasswordChangeEmail(;
  } catch (error) {
    console.error('Error in post user registration action:', error);

This will immediately send the user an email to reset their password upon creation/registration.
