Unable to disable sending password recovery email

Hello there,

I want my users to be able to change their password in case they forget it, and I want it to be by link (without random password). The problem is that when I click on not send email for this event on "User requests password recovery" (having enabled password recovery by link before this action", it shows me an error where it says You can not choose "User requests password recovery" if you set validator for "password" column.

How can I make it to be able to proccess password recovery by link instead of random password?

Try this: remove the validator, switch the password recovery option and see if you can re-enable the validator after the switch. If it does not let you, you may still be able to enforce password policy on the web page where your users will be setting the new password.

Hi Sergio,

Do you have a validator for the password column in the Users table?

Hey Mark!

That's true, I have set a custom RegEx validator.
