forgot password


We have a sign-on widget , custom-built  where we can turn on MFA from Okta for our web customers.
How do we implement "Forgot password" in an elegant manner so that, it doesn't take the user to the Okta dashboard.
Can someone point us to an Okta API we could use to elegantly implement this?
