Changing a Password

If you implement database or security adapter authentication, then a user can change the login password.

NOTE:  If you want to implement similar functionality in a Web SSO authentication environment, you are responsible for configuring the functionality in your external authentication application, in your user directory, in your security adapter, and in the Siebel application views. Configuration guidelines are not provided in Siebel Business Applications documentation.

To change a password, a user accesses the profile form as described in Editing Personal Information, and then completes the appropriate fields. The password-related fields are not editable if the password cannot be changed in the current authentication architecture.

Mobile users using the Siebel Mobile Web Client can also change their passwords for the local database and for synchronization. For details, see Siebel Remote and Replication Manager Administration Guide.
