New User Preferences?

Hi, I just installed RT and I’m having some problems. I’ll start with this
small one, and then I’ll probably send more later :slight_smile:

I’ve created a new user in my system and filled in all the info. When this
user logs in however there is no ‘preferences’ link to change it’s password.

Any idea what might be causing this? root gets the preferences box, but
not this user.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Make sure the user has the right ModifySelf. (I find it useful to
grant ModifySelf to Everyone in the global group rights panel.)

The main downside to this is that you must grant privileges to the user
to do this – which means the auto SelfService entry after login for
non-privileged users no longer happens. Anyone have a way around this
(besides going to /SelfService/ directly)?

Doh! Nevermind. Pseudogroup permissions do not require the user to be
privileged. Cool!
