The service generates and returns a random password string that can be recorded as a user login credential and provided to the user for later access. One use case for this function would be the response to a forgotten password or password reset request initiated by the user.
API methods support submission of a simple request, which returns an alphanumeric string consisting of some combination of numerals 0-9 and uppercase or lowercase alphabetic characters. Methods also accept special requests, with the returned string also incorporating selected punctuation and special characters.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
