With your Domain Coordinator role active use:
Main Menu > Set domain configuration > Display ("User creation" checked).

and then ensure that in the "Creating users when a Domain Coordinator" row checkboxes are checked for *all* authentication types you wish to support for users in your domain, and then push "Save" (see attached).

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] How to reset a password for   internally-authenticated user


For the purpose of demonstrations I have created a fake user and set it to be internally-authenticated.  (Real users are authenticated locally via ldap server.)

I would like to reset its password.  Unfortunately, I did not find where and how to do it as a domain coordinator.

  Menu >> User Management >> Create/Modify a user >> Select a user
I reached the 'Modify existing user' screen.

The 'Login Data' panel had only two radio-button options
  * [checked]      Do not change login data (Currently internally authenticated.)
  * [un-checked] Local Authentication with argument

Thank you in advance for any comment or advice.
