Changing user passwords in WFA 4.2

Periodically, I need to reset user passwords in WFA 4.2

It looks like there is no way to change passwords -- I have to delete the user account and recreate it.  Is there another way?

You can change WFA local users password. Below the the steps:

 

1) Goto Exectuion ==> Users menu

2) Double click on existing user

3) There will be checkbox called "Change password". This check this and you can enter new password and confirm the new password

4) Click save button

Hi Donna,

 

Also there is a WFA REST API for changing user passwords. You can access the documentation using "https://<%wfa_server%>/rest/docs" and authenticating as admin.

Its under "Systems Operations\User Management"

 

PUT /users/{user_name}/password

 

If you have to reset local user passwords manually on a regular basis then would configuring LDAP integration be an appropriate option?

Would also be possible to create a workflow to reset the local WFA user password

This API is can be called any user role ( Admin, Architech, Operator  Guest ) to change their own password.

 

Admins have the additional power to change password for other roles too.
