Self-service password, or SSPR, is pretty self-explanatory. This feature allows end users to reset forgotten passwords without the need for a call to the help desk. It's a feature that many organizations request, as it helps provide a more streamlined and pleasant end-user experience. Depending on the SSPR functionality that is required, license requirements may vary. For example, Self-Service Password Change functionality for cloud users is included in all editions of Azure AD. In these cases, we are talking about cloud-only users who wish to change their passwords to something new. Self-Service Password Reset functionality for cloud users is only included in Azure AD Basic and higher. It's not offered in the free version of Azure AD. This functionality applies to cloud-only users who wish to reset their passwords to something they know. Self-Service Password Reset, Password Change, and Password Unlock, leveraging on-premises write-back, requires either Azure AD Premium P1 or Premium P2. This functionality applies to hybrid users that are synced to Azure AD from an on-prem AD. So, when considering Self-Service Password Reset, it's important to understand the user base and how users are managed and provisioned.
