Thanks @mcglow2 for your contribution.
PR: https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/pull/1489

Few questions:

  • Can you share the scenarios where such features would be useful?
  • Did you see such APIs in other applications?
  • For admin scenario, should it be reset password (to trigger the flow) or set password explicitly.

The use case that inspired this addition to my mantis install is that we have a central system where users or admin can change an accounts password and it updates it in all the various other software packages we use. Issue 0022761 has a similar request to keep passwords in sync that sounds similar to our setup.

More often than not I have found that user management APIs allow me to explicitly set a password on an account. One examples that come to mind is Team Password manager - https://teampasswordmanager.com/docs/api-v3-users/ .

In my use case it is necessary for the admin to set it explicitly.
