EnablePasswordReset Property

SqlMembershipProvider.EnablePasswordReset Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether the SQL Server membership provider is configured to allow users to reset their passwords.

Namespace:   System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public override bool EnablePasswordReset { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the membership provider supports password reset; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Password reset allows the membership provider to replace the current password for a user name with a new, randomly generated password. This is especially useful when the PasswordFormat property is set to Hashed, as users cannot retrieve hashed password values.

The following code example shows the element in the system.web section of the Web.config file for an ASP.NET application. It specifies the application's SqlMembershipProvider instance and enables password reset.

<membership defaultProvider="SqlProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="20">
  <providers>
    <add name="SqlProvider"
      type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"
      connectionStringName="SqlServices"
      enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
      enablePasswordReset="true"
      requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true"
      passwordFormat="Hashed"
      applicationName="MyApplication" />
  </providers>
</membership>
