I am currently trying to find a way to let users change their password in Jira Software.
The currently installed version is 7.6.0, and I do use Jira's internal user directory. Searching for this issue brings up that the "Change Password" link on the user profile is not visible for external user directories only.
Any hints and suggestions are highly welcome. Thanks so much in advance.
Thanks for your reply. But it must be possible. There is documentation for it and it worked before. (But no idea when it stopped working. Haven't tried for a while)
The reason why I am not running it against my LDAP is that I had problems setting it up with the starters license (my user directory has more than 10 users in it). To be fair, this is ages ago. But changing the user directory provider now would bring more issues than it solves.
Any other ideas?

You should set this to "Off" under Administration / General configuration /Options External user management.
Thereafter, internal users will find the option to change their password in their profile, as expected.
Caveat: You will still be able to configure and use external directories, but on the logon-screen there will appear a link "Can't access your account?", which might confuse users coming from these.
