@arikfr Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but any plans on allowing admins to change the users' passwords without knowing the current one? I'd like to avoid setting up an SMTP server, but need a way to reset the users' passwords in case they forget.
@vitorbaptista you don't need to setup an SMTP server, but spend ~10 minutes signing up with a free MailGun account. As we move forward there will be additional features that will work better with working email setup (like notifications to admins in case of issues).
For now your option is to use the CLI. You are welcome to submit a pull request to change it to generate the forgot password link instead of asking the admin to supply a new password for the user.
