In a real-life scenario, users tend to forget their passwords, and contact the admin to help reset them. It appears the policy in OpenMRS 2.3 is for the admin to NOT be able to set a user’s password, beyond the initial account creation. See the discussion the developers had about this here…
What is the proper workflow for changing a user’s password when they forget it? The user can’t change their password, unless they know the current password. So, the check-box to “Force Password Change” isn’t going to be helpful in this use-case.
The work around for this would be to retire the current user account, and create a new one? When I try to do that, I get an error in the UI, because the username already exists.
What is the proper workflow for changing a user’s password when they forget it? Should we have a way for the admin to change user passwords?
