Can user change LDAP password throuth jira connected to crowd connected to MS Active Directory

Crowd 2.5.0 connected to MS Active Directory

directory type " Microsoft Active Directory ", all permissions are ticked

user for synchronisation has administrative rights in AD

Jira 5.1.4 connected to Crowd

Crowd permissions "Read only"

If I change crowd permission to "Read/Write" - will this make possible changing AD user password throuth jira?

yes if you have enabed read/write permissions for crowd in JIRA and in turn enable all the permissions in the ldap directoy i crowd then changes effected through JIRA will go all the way to LDAP as well

I want to note that AD does require a secured connection for password changes, so you'll likely have to setup SSL for this to work, more info:

does this relate for jira-crowd-ldap scheme too?

Hi Alex,

Another pointer, please ensure that the LDAP user used by Crowd to bind the LDAP server has the necessary permission to write into your LDAP server.
