Password changes are required for local accounts only; not for SSO access.

Use this task to periodically change your local password for security purposes. Your administrator configures the password reset schedule. You will be prompted to change your local password if it is not regularly changed.

About this task

You are automatically prompted to change your password the first time you log in and on a regular pre-configured amount of time.

SHARED Tip For security purposes, you will be prompted to change your password based on the schedule set by your administrator, which is typically every three months. However, you may change your password at any time.
