If a user's password has changed, an e-mail is sent to this user with information about the changed password. This e-mail is always sent, irrespective of whether the user has changed his password himself or whether the password was changed by another user, e.g. an administrator.
The e-mail is sent to the user's e-mail address stored in the LDAP.
The sender e-mail address, the subject and the text of the e-mail can be configured via the following etcd values:
password_change/notification_enabled: defines whether the e-mail notification is enabled.
password_change/mail_sender_address: specifies the e-mail address that is displayed as the sender of the e-mail.
password_change/mail_sender_name: specifies the name that is displayed as the sender name of the e-mail.
password_change/mail_subject: specifies the subject of the e-mail.
password_change/mail_text: specifies the text of the e-mail.
The following should be noted:
- These values are optional. If no values are set, default values are used.
In the texts, special characters must be specified in encoded form.
%uid: For the user ID (=username) of the user
%name: For the complete name (cn) of the user
