Generate Report to display Last Password Reset Date

Requirement & Challenge:

There was a requirement to include a report in User Management Module to show/track last updated/reset date of password by users.

Unfortunately, there was no direct approach available to produce a report that would reveal the last updated or reset date of the password.  

Solution:

Salesforce does not provide any out of the box feature to match the requirement and have the desired results. After relentless efforts, we came up with a solution where we would need to create a Custom Report Type on USER object allowing us direct access to the last password change/reset date field. 

The steps are given below.
  • Navigate to Setup and search for Report Type.
  • Click on the Create new Report type button, and select Users as the primary object.
  • Store it in the Administrative Reports category, and check the Deployed checkbox at the bottom.
  • Click Next and Save.
  • Then, scroll down to Field Available for Reports and click Edit Layout.
  • Select Last Password Change or reset and save the layout.
  • Now, after the layout is saved, create a report and select the report type that you have just created, and click on create.
  • Now we would be able to find the field name Last Password Change or reset.
  • Save the report.

Thus, by creating a new report type using the Administrative Reports category, we overcame the challenge to display the field Last Password Change or Reset in the report.
