Password reset by existing Session

POSThttps://test.stytch.com/v1/passwords/session/reset

Reset the user’s password using their existing session. The endpoint will error if the session does not have a password, email magic link, or email OTP authentication factor that has been issued within the last 5 minutes. This endpoint requires either a session_jwt or session_token be included in the request.

Note that a successful password reset via an existing session will revoke all active sessions for the user_id, except for the one used during the reset flow.
