Requesting a new password

by Mohammed Gomma   Last Updated April 19, 2018 20:07 PM

I need to request a new password via services.

I used the URL: <endpoint>/user/password?args['name']=test2

but it returns Access denied for user anonymous

It's supposed to be used by non authenticated users so why does it return this error?. What am I doing wrong here? What is the URL should I use?

According to this sandbox (from two years ago):

Services module provides integration with User module but it does not provide the service to request a new password in case a user has forgotten it.

The sandbox claims to fix that.
