    "change password" under my account in 11.1.1.6.8 missing

    user8969486
      Hi,

      We used to have an option that allowes non admin user to change his password on his own in OBIEE 11.1.1.6.2.
      we have a new installtion Environment OBIEE 11.1.1.6.8 there we dont see that tab at all under MyAccount link from OBIEE answers.
      is there any configuration needs to be done to get that option back, suggesstion please??

      Thanks

            If I am not wrong change Password for users in 11g was not available in 11.1.1.6.2 or before. Correct me if I am wrong

            This should be customized by using custom java code. Pls refer to :

            Oracle still has not provided any fix or patch for this , see Bug 11836170 : ENABLE NON ADMIN USERS TO CHANGE PASSWORDS IN OBIEE 11G

            This is because security communication OBIEE and WLS where users are stored might have to consider several authentications providers, doing this very difficult to manage.

            Hope this helps. Pls mark if it does.

              Hi,

              I have installed 11.1.1.6.2 BP1 patch on my local machine. There is "change password" facility under Myaccount if you log in from BI Publisher URL.

              This option is not available in 11.1.1.6.8.

              we have been using the method mentioned in the below link for 11.1.1.5.0 and thinking to do same on 11.1.1.6.8.

              issue here is, we are required to mask the password when typing, anybody has any idea of achieving that.

              Appreciate your quick response.

              Thanks
