10.6 Changing a User Password

The initial password set for a new PlateSpin Transformation Manager user account is temporary. Users should modify the password after their first login to the Web Interface. The new password is stored, and takes effect the next time the user logs in for a session.

NOTE:For improved security, we recommend that users regularly modify their PTM user account passwords.

A System Administrator user or a user assigned the System Administrator role can change the password for any user account. Non-administrator users can change the password only for their own user account.

  1. In the Web Interface toolbar, select Users.

  2. Select the Users tab.

  3. In the Users list, double-click the user name, or select the user name and click Edit.

  4. In the Edit User dialog, type the preferred password, then type it again to confirm the change.

  5. Click Save.

  6. Click Close.
