User Accounts for Password Reset: Allow Reps to Administer User Passwords

Users & Security


User Accounts

Administrators can delegate, via user permission, the task of resetting local users’ passwords and locked user accounts to another user, without also granting full administrator permissions. Local users may continue to reset their own passwords.

When a privileged non-administrative user enters the Users & Security > Users page in the administrative /login interface, they see a limited-view Users screen containing Change Password links for non-administrative users. The privileged user is not able to edit or delete user accounts. Privileged users are not allowed to reset administrator passwords, or the passwords of security provider users.

Administrators with the Allowed to set passwords permission will see no difference in the user interface.
