reset password not working

Hello,

I am trying to implement a reset password feature.

I have set the preferred method in the email preferences by chosing the "do not send" flag for one of the two options and unflagging the other option. Then I send a rest request to https://api.backendless.com/v1/users/restorepassword/<myusername>; and I properly receive the email with the reset link. On the form I insert the new password and I gives me a success message.

But then I am not able to login with the new password, but the old one still works.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you

Hello,

Did you see if the user object is updated in Backendless console?

What is your app id? I'd like to try it myself.

Hello,

I was able to reproduce the problem. I will schedule a ticket for the development team.

I also noticed your app is on the free plan. The free plan will discontinue in Backendless 3.x on November 1st. Are you planning to migrate to Backendless 4 or will you be upgrading the plan to a paid one?

Regards,

Mark

I think I will switch to a paid plan for now, the migration is too much painfull
