SqlMembershipProvider.EnablePasswordReset SqlMembershipProvider.EnablePasswordReset SqlMembershipProvider.EnablePasswordReset SqlMembershipProvider.EnablePasswordReset Property

Definition

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

public:
 virtual property bool EnablePasswordReset { bool get(); };
public override bool EnablePasswordReset { get; }
member this.EnablePasswordReset : bool
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property EnablePasswordReset As Boolean

Property Value

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

Examples

The following code example shows the membership 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>  

Remarks

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.
