Backendless password reset by link

Hi Guys

On backendless 5.x the password recovery by link works well.

However is it possible to put the necessary files in the link on a different website and for it to work?

Example the link by default is something like
Link to change password:
https://api.backendless.com/xx/yy/change_password/zz

but for neatness sake I want it to put the password change page onto the domain of company who owns the app.
so something like
https://www.mycompany.com/change_password

As a guess I tried manually dropping all the files and sub folder files in web/templates/change_password to change_password on my domain but I got an error when I tried to change password. (invalid metthod http verb is being used)

Hi Mike,

You can assign a custom domain to your backend using the UI at Manage > App Settings > Custom Domain and then making a change in the DNS settings. I believe once a domain is assigned, the generated URL will use the domain name.

Ah, thanks for that pointer Mark. I will take a look.

Is it possible to use the same custom domain on multiple backendless applications or should you setup a different custom domain for each backendless application?

Basically I would like to setup one custom domain for all of my different backendless applications so I don’t have so much setup to do, but I don’t know if this would work.

It needs to be a separate domain or a subdomain for each application.

Hi

I have setup custom domain and all working.

However it goes to my http://subdomain.mycompany.co.uk/api/xxxx

Can it be set to go to https://subdomain.mycompany.co.uk/api/xxxx

Before I changed CNAME on the subdomain to develop.backendless.com it was secured

Hi Mike,

It is possible for the apps on the Cloud99 plan. See the “Custom SSL Certificate” line here:

We would need to deploy your SSL certificate on our side.

Ah, no problem.

Will propose to client.

How do I reset the custom domain back to backendless?
