BBIS: Please enter a valid email address when using the password reset process with a new email address

If you add a new primary email to a Blackbaud CRM constituent, you may find that the constituent is unable to reset their BBIS password with the new email address.
Download and install the latest Service Pack which contains all fixes from previous patches. If you are running an older version, download and install the latest version and then the patch.

If you are unable to update at this time, do the following for the user who cannot reset their password:

  2. Go to Users & Security -> Users
  3. Search for the user who is unable to reset their password
  4. Click on the pencil icon to edit
  5. Ask the user to reset their password again, with the updated email address

  2. Ensure the constituent is signed up on BBIS and note the username
  3. Add a new email address to the constituent record and mark it as primary
  4. Go to a login page in BBIS and attempt to reset the password with the updated email, observe you get an error to insert a valid email
