How to implement "Forgot Password" functionality in React Native using 8base Auth


I am building a React Native app and am using the built-in/default 8base auth. It looks like I can create a custom login/sign-up form using the userLogin and userSignupWithPassword API endpoints, but I don’t see anything like a userForgotPassword endpoint available or documented anywhere.

Any help is appreciated!


Hey @stevenwaller!

There actually isn’t a userForgotPassword mutation. You’ll have to add that one yourself using your own Auth0, as the 8base authentication is really intended for use with the hosted sign up page.

Here is a tutorial to help you set up auth that also has a resolver for the userForgotPassword mutation. Hope it all helps and let me know if you get stuck!


Thanks for the clarification and the links!
