Hello Lutz,


I'm afraid that's not a possible action to perform through the UI.

Although it is possible to change passwords directly on the database (cwd_application table), you'd need to have the hash value for the new password.

hello Eduardo,

do You mean that is possible for edirectory, active diectory and ldap behind oracle ocs?

I'm not sure I got what you mean. My answer was related to the Applications on Crowd, not to Directories.

However, it's not possible to perform bulk updates on Crowd, so you'd need to change the password for each Application/Directory you want to change, or run the update directly on the Crowd's database using queries.


I hope it helps!

@Lutz Faber with your clarifying comment, this is the correct answer; it's not possible to do what you're asking via Crowd's UI at the moment. It would be tricky to do this, because each directory can enforce its own password requirements, and if the password change were to succeed in one LDAP directory but fail in another one, we would have no way to roll back.

In case you meant change a user's password for more than 1 application, then that depends on how you have your applications configured. If two or more applications are configured to use the same directory in Crowd, then resetting a user's password for a particular directory will take effect for all applications which are configured to use that directory.

hello Eduardo and Caspar, I'm sorry, that I didn't wrote in the correct terms of crowd. What I seaarch is the possibility to change the password of one user in different directories at the same time. The user should change his password at one place, and the system changes the passwort in all directories, where the user is. Best regards, Lutz
