If you have forgotten your password, you cannot access your BSCW workspaces any more – and, of course, you cannot change your password as described above.
For exactly this case of emergency, BSCW provides a specific procedure to assign a new password without having to provide the old one:
• Open the registration page of your BSCW server (on FIT’s public BSCW server this is https://public.bscw.de/pub) and click the link “Forgot password?” in order to register a new password. Also the normal login form has this link.
• In the following action form, enter one of the e-mail addresses which BSCW has already associated with your user name (e.g. your primary e-mail address) and confirm with [OK].
• BSCW will then send a message to the e-mail address given, which contains the URL of a form that allows you to set a new password for yourself.
