As is mentioned in the following topics:
- Update content and placeholder on Forgot Password screen
- Why does the Reset Password portion of the new universal login dialog only mention username, rather than email address?
We have “Requires Username” enabled in our database connection because we need both a username and email address (due to a limitation of a system we’re integrating with).
The reset password screen only asks the user for a username, not also an email address. However this form accepts an email address or a username, despite the text.
This has already caused confusion for our users as most people don’t remember their username, only their email address, and it doesn’t look like there’s any way to fix it without reverting to a fully custom login page.
The text also is inconsistent with the login page, which asks for either a username or an email address.
Can this be fixed? It seems like a small tweak that would help anyone who uses “Requires Username”
EDIT: I have tried unsetting “Requires Username”, but that means that creating a user with a username via the Management API gives the following error: “Cannot set username for connection without requires_username”
