How to email a password based on Email address and a Username

hi there

I have built a website for a housing company whereby users can register more than once using the same email address but with a different property code (displayname) for each account. The property code (displayname) serves as the unique value when logging in to their accounts.

I'm trying to set up the Forgot Password page to do the following:

1. User enters their email address, and their unique code (displayname)
2. The password is sent to their email address, but needs to be the password that corresponds to their unique code as entered (displayname)

I can get it to work as standard by looking up the email address... but stuck on getting it to lookup the unique (displayname) to send the correct password...

Any ideas ?

many thanks

You wont be able to use the Security assist forgot password behavior for this.

You will need to create a new page with a form to collect the display name and display name.

Add a recordset that will filter the users table on the entered email and display name to return the correct record.

add the Universal Email behavior to the page, set the to address to use the email address form the recordset, for the body, uncheck the option to use a file to manage the email, and click the DW Edit button to design the email body, and use the password recordset binding to add the password to the message body.
