You can use the updateUser method. validateUpdateUser will return error if you don't have permission to modify the password.

Jobin, I have tried a lot but still not able to modify the password of an user. I tried by follwing way, please verify and let me the correct way to achive the functionality.

#1. I tried to use UserManager class to update an user (com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User.updateUser()). But here User calss cant be intialized. I thought, I will create an User object with modify the password and update the user. But I failed to do this. Can you tell me how can i create an User object with modified password?

#2. I tried DefaultUserservice (com.atlassian.jira.bc.user.DefaultUserService) class to use updateUser() method, but i am not able to get this Class object and not able to send the parameter (UserService.UpdateUserValidationResult) for updateUser() method. Do you have any example piece of code to achive this functionality.

In jira 4.3 i used below piece of code to modify the password of an user.


Please help me to modify an user password in Jira5.0.

Either inject UserService in the constructor or use ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserService.class)

Also working by below code. Thanks for your quidance.

userUtil.changePassword(userManager.getUserObject(quicklookID), strPassword);
