    How can i have a widget in my theme to change my password?

    Hi Ramakrishna!

    There isn't anything native that would allow this, but you might be able to build something custom using our API!

    Can I change the layout/content of the email that is being sent in step 4 of the above procedure? I've been looking for the template, but cannot locate it in the Zendesk settings I'm afraid. 

    A pointer to the right location would be appreciated.

    Hi Filip,

    Thanks for reaching out to Zendesk Customer Advocacy. Unfortunately, while most end-user notifications can be changed, the reset password notification is not currently modifiable. I recommend going to our product feedback page to submit a request for a modifiable reset password notification. Product feedback is the best way our customers' voices can be heard regarding feature requests and product changes.

    Best regards

    Hi Jessica, 

    Am Looking for API call to update password. 

    I just had a search in User profile, we dont see anything fields which says as "password".


    How can we change the user password via API call ?

    Hello Bharath,

    Kindly see the following portion of our API documentation that provides detail on setting and changing a user's password: Users - Core API - Set a User's Password

    An admin can set a user's password only if the setting is enabled under Settings > Security > Global. The setting is off by default. Only the account owner can access and change this setting in Zendesk Support.

    The UI looks different now than what's shown above (see below), and I can't seem to see where to change my password. I am the account owner.

    I see the Passwords tab, but there's nothing there about changing it. I've checked the other tabs and pages in the Security section, and don't see it there either. What am I missing?

    Hello Tami,

    You should be able to find this not in Admin Settings but your User Profile Settings under Security Settings. I've attached an article that breaks this process down in further detail, and please let us know if you have further questions.
