Changing user’s password

On the User Edit Window, there is now an extra field called ‘New Password’ which if populated will trigger a password change (an extra request will be made to the WebService’s SetUserPasswordHash method):

For reference here is the Javascript method that makes the call to SetUserPasswordHash:

function updateUserPassword(userId, userName, newPassword, callback)
var url = tmWebServices + 'SetUserPasswordHash';
var passwordHash = SHA256(userName + newPassword);
var params =  JSON.stringify( { userId : userId  ,passwordHash : passwordHash  } );
invokeWebService( url, params, callback, defaultErrorHandler);
