This application component gives the following features once added to a CUBA project:

  • Enables displaying an optional Forgot password link in the main login window, allowing users to send themselves an email with a reset password link
  • Enables logging in by both login name and email (this works also when using REST API). PLEASE NOTE that requires a UNIQUE constraint on the email attribute of the User entity (simply put, users' emails must be unique in the system)
  • Exposes a new REST service (extsec_UserManagementService) that enables REST clients to use the forgot password functionality via API calls
  • Only for framework versions 6.6-6.8. Adds an allowAnonymous boolean attribute to the rest-services.xml file, allowing for only some methods to be called without an authorization token via REST API (v2). This is the mechanism that allows the extsec_UserManagementService to be used before authentication, but can be leveraged by custom services too
