Setting a password recovery email is very useful when a password to access the Connected on Demand environment is forgotten.


By setting up a password recovery email, you can reset your own password to access the Connected on Demand Hosted Cloud, without needing your Administrator or Connected Support1.


NOTE: Setting a password recovery email can be used to recover a forgotten password or to reset a password which has expired.
