      Description

      There is no link to accounts.jenkins.io/login from the jenkins.io homepage or the account pages on issues.jenkins-ci.org or wiki.jenkins-ci.org.

      I wasted 20 minutes trying to figure out how to change my password. I wanted to change my password because of this email I received:

      Due to a recent security issue, which is explained in this post: https://jenkins.io/blog/2016/04/22/possible-infra-compromise/, the Jenkins infrastructure team has proactively reset the password for your Jenkins community account...

      If I had bothered to read the whole email I would have read this:

      Please visit https://accounts.jenkins.io/myself/ and reset it immediately.

      Eventually I figured out how to change my password because forgot password links (like the one on wiki.jenkins-ci.org/login.action) link to accounts.jenkins.io, and that page includes a link to accounts.jenkins.io/myself/.

      All the same, I see some other tickets have been opened in the past for this issue. (They were closed after people were informed about accounts.jenkins.io/myself/ in comments in the ticket.) I wonder how many other users have wasted time trying to figure this out.

      I think it would be very helpful if the jenkins.io home page and the account pages on issues.jenkins-ci.org and wiki.jenkins-ci.org all included links to accounts.jenkins.io/myself/ as well.

          Jenkins JIRA is sending the password in clear text in email and offering no obvious way to change it.
