Configuring user password change options

This user password change option is independent of those available in User Security Policies > Self Service > Password Reset.

To configure user password change options:

  1. Log in to Admin Portal.
  2. Click Access > Policies.
  3. Select the relevant policy set or create a new one.
  4. Click User Security Policies > User Account Settings.
  5. Select Yes in the Enable user to change their passwords drop-down list.

    If this policy is set to No and you use the Maximum password age policy to set an expiration date for the password, users will not be able to reset their password. Instead, an administrator will have to reset the password for them.

  6. (Optional) Select from the Authentication Profile drop-down list to specify the authentication mechanism users must provide to change their password.

    See Creating authentication profiles for authentication profile information.

  7. Click Save.
