Password reset question answer change by non admin user

Jan 27, 2014 at 3:52 PM
I am implementing Sharepoint 2013 using FBA. I have tested the functionality but I have not figured out how the users can change their password reset questions and answers. As an admin, I can do that but when I login as a normal user, all I see is the password change section. I could not find a way to change the password reset question and answer.

I actually recommend you set


and not use the membership provider's question and answer functionality.

The reason for that is that MS did not implement it very well, and if requiresQuestionAndAnswer is turned on, administrator's cannot reset a user's password without knowing the password themselves.

Additionally, MS never provided a control for changing the question and answer, and one hasn't been built for the FBA Pack. So at the moment, once the question and answer have been created, they are stuck at their initial values.
