  1. go to or, and click 'Sign in'
  2. enter an email secondary address that is previously known to (|
  3. when you get prompted for a password, click 'forgot password'
  4. Here's the difference. In prod 'reset password' shows the email address that will be reset; in dev, it lacks that context (perhaps this is intended, but it just struck me as curious).

In prod:

In dev:

Agreed, we need a short bit of copy that says this is a password reset

Actually, I was thinking that showing the email address (as it was before) would be good (what email address am I resetting).


jrgm commented May 11, 2012

Actually, sorry, yeah, you're right. Both copy and what email should be there.

The tricky thing here is overly associating a specific email address with the password. I'd like for people to associate the password with Persona, and not with one specific email address.

Make the in dialog set-password flow work with requiredEmail.
* In set_password.ejs, only show the "cancel" button if not setting the initial password for a required email.
* Update required_email.js to handle the set-password in dialog flow.
* Clean up required_email.js so that it is easier to follow.
* Rename the "add_email_submit_with_secondary" message to "stage_email" - much clearer.
* Show a message whenever resetting the account password.
