[Fixed]-Adding forgot-password feature to Django admin site

30👍

They are all there built in the django. Just add the relevant url patterns. As follows.

from django.contrib.auth import views as auth_views

patterns+=('',
url(r'^passreset/$',auth_views.password_reset,name='forgot_password1'),
url(r'^passresetdone/$',auth_views.password_reset_done,name='forgot_password2'),
url(r'^passresetconfirm/(?P<uidb36>[-\w]+)/(?P<token>[-\w]+)/$',auth_views.password_reset_confirm,name='forgot_password3'),
url(r'^passresetcomplete/$',auth_views.password_reset_complete,name='forgot_password4'),
)

And, oh, while you are at it, also add the views and url patterns for password change.

url(r'^password/change/$',
   auth_views.password_change,
   name='auth_password_change'),
url(r'^password/change/done/$',
   auth_views.password_change_done,
   name='auth_password_change_done'),

They are listed in the documentation of course.

You’ll have to provide your own templates.

Actually since Django 1.4 there’s an easy way to get the forgotten password link appear directly in the admin login page (which sounds like the precise question asked):

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.1/ref/contrib/admin/#adding-a-password-reset-feature

You can add a password-reset feature to the admin site by adding a few
lines to your URLconf. Specifically, add these four patterns:

url(r'^admin/password_reset/$',
    'django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset',
    name='admin_password_reset'), (r'^admin/password_reset/done/$',
    'django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset_done'),
(r'^reset/(?P<uidb36>[0-9A-Za-z]+)-(?P<token>.+)/$',
    'django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset_confirm'),
(r'^reset/done/$',
    'django.contrib.auth.views.password_reset_complete'), 

(This assumes
you’ve added the admin at admin/ and requires that you put the URLs
starting with ^admin/ before the line that includes the admin app
itself).

Changed in Django 1.4 The presence of the admin_password_reset named
URL will cause a “forgotten your password?” link to appear on the
default admin log-in page under the password box
