How to hide change password form for users connected via read-only Active Directory users?

We have Confluence connected to a Crowd directory that is coupled to ActiveDirectory for authentication only (i.e. it's a read-only connection to AD).

Users of this directory are trying to change their password using the Confluence password form, and this results in a null pointer exception.

Is it possible to hide the change password form for these users?

We have another internal Crowd directory which is read/write, and for its users the change-password form should not be hidden in Confluence.

You may change Jira template inits guts.

Remember to copy that, each time Jira is updated.

here it is Jira login JSP template (in this case jira is installed in /srv/jira/):

/srv/jira/atlassian-jira/includes/loginform.jsp

You may check this out too:

/srv/jira/atlassian-jira/secure/views/user/changepassword.jsp

/srv/jira/atlassian-jira/views/resetpassword.jsp

To clarify, I'm looking for a way to do this in Confluence and not JIRA. I'd like Confluence to detect that the ActiveDirectory authenticated user is connected to a read-only user-directory and display an appropriate message while allowing regular (read-write user directory) users change their password.

We need this also. It actually seems like a bug in Confluence. When will it be addressed?
