password recovery component for the CubicWeb framework

Project description


The forgotpwd cube provides an easy way to generate a new password for an user, eg the common”I forgot my password” functionnality.

It is non-obstrusive and easy to plug.


This cube creates a new entity called Fpasswd. This is an internal entity: managers and users can’t read/delete or modify this kink of entity.

The workflow of password recovery is defined below :

  1. ask for a new password, the user must have a valid primary email associated to his account.

  2. An email has been sent. This email contains a generated url associated to an user. This link is valid during a short period. This time limit can be configured in the all-in-one.conf file:

    revocation-limit=30 # minutes
  3. If the link is valid, the user can change his password in a new form.

There is an automatic task that delete periodically all old Fpasswd which are stored in the database. This task is started at the launching of the application.
