Changing Password for user


#1

Dear All,

How do we allow users to change their password? I am using 3.6.5 version. Is
there any option that needs to be enabled? I have searched but haven’t had
any luck.

I could not find an option in 3.6.5 to allow users to change their own
passwords. Unfortunately, I had to do it for them as an administrator.
However, I found that in 3.6.6 and 3.8 beta 2, users now can change their
own passwords.

Give them the right ModifySelf.

I just looked again at my rt installations’ setups, and I can’t find the
option to change the password at the moment. I thought it was under
preferences, but I could be mistaken. Looking at email, it looks like
Benjamin Weser has a suggestion as well.

I searched but I didn’t find any option “ModifySelf” in RT 3.6.5. I think I
have to prepare for an upgrade.On Wed, May 21, 2008 at 1:30 PM, Elbert Lai elbertlai@itiva.com wrote:

It is a right that can be granted. Configuration -> Global -> User
Rights (or Group Rights if you’d rather do it for Requestor, everyone, etc.)

Admin user: Configuration->Global->Group/User Rights.

I’ve set my “Privileged Users” to be able to ModifySelf so they can keep their
personal data up-to-date, as well.

Well the job is done !!! Thanks.

As a superuser one can perform it.

By enabling “ModifySelf” option, along with the right to change the
password, the user gets added rights too( Search Options, Creating Personal
groups, RT at a glance).
