Reproducing the Issue

  1. A welcome message notification will be sent to a newly added user with login permission
  2. User receives the notification and click on the Set Password link
  3. No reset password page appears and user is redirected to the login page


The Set Password URL has probably already expired.


In order to solve this issue, you can trigger the e-mail to be sent again.

  1. From BizX Admin Center, search for "Send System Message Email Notification" or "Send User Welcome Email)
  2. Select "Send system message by user"
  3. Search for the affected user
  4. Thick the box on the left side of the Username
  5. Click on "Send System Message"


To change the expiry settings, you can refer to the KBA 2266043
