Richard Yale answered a previous question about turning off the ability for a user to change his/her own password by recommending I edit the
<confluence_home>\confluence\users\changemypassword.vm file as described here to achieve my goal.
Since I'm new to velocity, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if by using vm files, it is possible to conditionally show/hide the ability to reset your password based on the currently logged in user.
For example, can I do something like the following:
If LoggedInUser is Fred Then Don't let him change password. Else Let him change password. EndIf.
Any idea if this type of logic is possible in the vm files. (It's all new to me...)
Of course. As you can see from the example you use # infront of the if, else, elseif and close them with #end
This is what you would put in that section it says to replace. This may or may not work correctly as it is not tested.
#set($username = $req.userPrincipal.name)
#if($username == "Fred")
#bodytag( "Password" "label='cur.pass.name'" "name='currentPassword'" "theme='aui'")
#bodytag( "Password" "label='new.pass.name'" "name='newPassword'" "theme='aui'")
#bodytag( "Password" "label='new.pass.confirm.name'" "name='newPasswordConfirmation'" "theme='aui'")

Please continue to use your actual password<br>
