Changing your password
From the top right of the screen “My Preferences” or from the menu bar a screen can be opened where you can change your password.
Users often choose poor passwords. We enforce a certain validation rules for passwords:
- Passwords need to be at least 8 characters.
- Passwords cannot be similar to the user name, email address, first name or last name.
- Passwords cannot be entirely numeric.
- Password cannot be part of a list of commonly used passwords.
An administrator can use the user administration screen to change passwords as well.
