CUNY Central person having password trouble
User ekaterina reports that when she tries to change her password, she receives the link which takes her to the change password page, but then receives an “invalid username” message. She is Ekaterina Sukhanova, the University Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, and urgently needs access for her work at CUNY Central. At my request, she tried again to change her password so that it included a character (? or * or ! ) as well, but this has not solved her problem. Can someone manually reset it?

The user ekaterina does exist in the system. I'm not sure where the "invalid username" could be coming from - perhaps a mistyped username?
I've just initiated a password reset procedure for ekaterina, and I didn't get any errors. Could you check with her to see whether she's gotten the email, and whether she was able to reset her password this time?
I'd like to avoid resetting user passwords manually, but I can do it if we have no other choice.

Thanks, Marilyn. For CAC, it appears that she does not use her full email address as the username. I have her listed as 'ekaterina'.
I'm not really sure what's going on here, and it's difficult to troubleshoot in this way, so I'm going to go ahead and reset her password. I'll send the new pw to you as an email, and you can pass it along and tell her to reset it once she's logged in (https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/members/ekaterina/settings/)
