    Password reset emails - implications of setting umbracoApplicationUrl

    Hi guys,

    We have a multisite setup running on Azure. Had a strange incident yesterday where one of the back office users requested a password reset, and the link they received used a subdomain that we'd recently setup on a new branch of content for testing, and wasn't actually live yet.

    They were logged in to the back office on, yet for some reason the password reset email used

    After some research, I found we can use the setting umbracoApplicationUrl in umbracoSettings.config to force Umbraco to always use a particular Url for referencing the back office/application.

    If I set this to, then the password reset emails contain the correct domain - and everyone is happy.

    However, I wondered if I could get some advice or feedback on what else in Umbraco uses umbracoApplicationUrl, and what the implications might be of hard coding it to a single Url?

    Also - this does seem to be a bit of a bug that Umbraco can pick a subdomain almost at random for these emails?
