    How to add a 'Forgot My Password' link to the login page in the new UI when using Alma for authentication

    • Product: Primo, Primo VE

     

    Question

    How do I add a 'Forgot My Password' or 'Reset Password' link to the login page in the new UI for an Alma authentication profile?

    Answer

    This can be done by adding a link to the login page that will lead to an Alma reset password page:

    https://<your Alma domain>/view/resetPw?institutionCode=<inst code>&backUrl=<Primo’s URL>
    (for example, https://sandbox02-eu.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/view/resetPw?institutionCode=EXLDEV1_INST&backUrl=https://primoUrl.com).

    The link configured will appear under the 'Need help signing in?' section:

    Configuration in Primo
    1. In the Primo Back Office, navigate to: Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables
    2. Edit the 'User Login Links' mapping table
    3. Create a new row:
      1. Link Code - The link that is being added.
      2. Link URL - The URL to the reset password page that is described above.
      3. Description - An internal description of the link
      For example:
