to be clear, the normal scenario is….

1. administrator resets user’s password using the resetPassword api
2. admin sends new password to user
3. user connects to a page that calls the changePassword api where they enter the old password,
supplied by admin, and the new password.
4. afterwards user logs on normally using either authenticate or createSession, using the
new password.

If you just want to change the password, and not leave it in reset state, you should call
the updateUser api.

Let me know if you have any questions.
