Has anyone rolled out a self-service password reset utility for IPA?
If so did you use something off the shelf that speaks LDAP or roll
your own?

I'm looking at this:


But I'm just starting down this path.



With FreeIPA 3.0 beta 1 it's really easy to write own page for password reset because of new API for that [1]. You don't have to though. Beta 1 already contains a stand-alone reset page (it was added along with password reset in forms-based auth)[2]. It looks like this: http://pvoborni.fedorapeople.org/ui/reset_password.html

Custom page could you code like this, or just plain html form.

    data = {
        user: username,
        old_password: old_password,
        new_password: new_password

    request = {
        url: '/ipa/session/change_password',
        data: data,
        contentType: 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded',
        processData: true,
        dataType: 'html',
        async: false,
        type: 'POST',
        success: success_handler,
        error: error_handler
