Summary0023509: Generate a random string when resetting password, or allow admin to define it
Description

When e-mail notifications are disabled (i.e. $g_enable_email_notification = OFF), the user's password is set to blank when reset by an administrator.

This is not secure, and it would be preferable to set it to a random string (shown once to the admin), or to let the admin assign a password himself.

Additional Information

Such a feature was proposed previously (see PR https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/pull/751)

It is also available as a plugin (for Mantis 1.2 only as of this writing): https://github.com/mantisbt-plugins/AdminSetPassword (see 0015658).

TagsNo tags attached.
