Changing Your Password

In addition to changing your name and email, the user profile allows you to change your password by clicking on the Change password button. You will be prompted to authenticate with your current password and subsequently supply your new password in pop up dialogs.

The password change feature only works with the built-in security realm. If you are using a different security realm like LDAP or Crowd, this option will not be visible.
