#9168 closed (duplicate)

contrib.auth login for should accept an authentication_form parameter for alternate backends

A more generic solution to #7507.

In my example, I want to use email addresses to log in with. But the current AuthenticationForm limits the username parameter to 30 characters. If the form was a parameter, the login view would be a lot more generic.

Smiley, that patch looks good to me, but the new link in the docs are using the old style xref, instead of the new sphinx style.

The patch in #8274 also takes care of the password_change. Closing as duplicate, although I made a link to this one since the docs addition is quite useful.
