Login Form

Login form with multiple authentication options: builtin authentication, LDAP authentication example

The login form is available from any page at top right. Depending on Authentication plugins available, FusionForge displays one tab per plugin.
The default plugin Built-In Authentication provides links to:

  • reset lost password
  • create new account if configuration flag user_registration_restricted is not set (default value is no).
  • resend confirmation email to pending account.

Password modification


User can modify their password directly from their account page.
The modification password form requires:

  • the old password of the user
  • the new password the user wants to set. For validation, the user must repeat the new password in the form.

Important: password modification works with the default Built-In plugin.
