The authentication_recover_password_form tag renders a form that allows the visitor to set a new password, after a password recover is requested using the authentication_request_password_recovery_form. This form should only be used in the 

The authentication_recover_password_form tag takes the plural name of an Authentication Type as input

It is also possible to give extra arguments as a key,value pair. These arguments are transformed into html attributes on the generated form html tag.

The authentication_recover_password_form tag requires that the authentication_field tag is called inside of it for each of the inputs:

  • 'password'

  • 'confirm_password'


1 2 3 4 5 {% authentication_recover_password_form "dealers" %}     {% authentication_field "password", class: "form-field" %}     {% authentication_field "confirm_password", class: "form-field" %}     <input type="submit" value="Update password!"> {% endauthentication_recover_password_form %}

Note: Do not forget to display the output of [request.flash], since that contains potential error messages.

JSON endpoint

Also accepts parameter output_as, which currently only accepts "json" as value. If this parameter is set, no html is returned, but everything needed for the payload in authentication endpoints is returned in JSON format. With this you can call the following endpoint in order to recover a password through a JSON request:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 PUT /:authentication_type_name/recover_password Accept: application/json { "authentication_object": { "password": "newPa55word", "confirm_password": "newPa55word", ... # JSON output from tag } }
