Hi guys!

Current version of EPiServer: CMS 5.1 


I wanna chage user password, it's easy:

MemberShip.User = Membership.GetUser();

user.ChangePassword(current, newPassword);


But how can I change password without supplying current password?

I know that I can retrivew current password using:


but I do not want to change membership configuration (this affects security).


How does EPiServer change password in Admin area (there are just two fields new password and confirm password)?!


I not want to reset password.

This is how we do it:

string temporaryPassword = membershipUser.ResetPassword(); membershipUser.ChangePassword(temporaryPassword, Password.Text);

Does this function work for episerver cms 4.62?

In 4.* version this works.

int SidID = X;
UserSid userSid = UserSid.Load(SidID);
string strPwd = "abcdefg123"
