This post continues the series on the Backendless User service. Previously we covered user registration API, delivery of the welcome email upon the registration, login API, and the ability to enable/disable user accounts. The feature highlighted in this post focuses on changing user’s password in the Backendless console. There are several ways to change the password, including using the API or by requesting password recovery. The approach reviewed here is reserved strictly for the administrator/developer of the application. To change user’s password in console, follow the steps below:
- Login to console, select an app and click the Data icon.
- The Users table should be selected by default. Make sure you’re viewing the contents of the Users table and find the user for whom you need to change the password.
- Locate the password column. The contents will appear blank for the reason that console never shows user’s passwords.
- Click the password cell for the user’s account and type the new password. Press Enter to finalize the password submission. The password becomes effective immediately.
