If your JIRA administrator has configured the user directory containing your account with external password management, the 'Change Password' link will not be available.

    What happens "If your JIRA administrator has configured the user directory containing your account with external password management, the 'Change Password' link will not be available." ?

    I mean, how can I change a password (admin) that is not in the "external password management" ?

    1. Administration -> User Browser -> Click on username -> Click "Set Password"

      I have not tried it yet.

        I have admin rights but there is no "Set Password" link at:

        Administration -> User Browser -> Click on username

        Has this link been moved to somewhere else?

  3. "If your JIRA administrator has configured the user directory containing your account with external password management, the 'Change Password' link will not be available."

     

    This does not work on JIRA OnDemand. Even if external user management is ON, the 'Change Password' link is still available. Is there any other way to disable that link on JIRA OnDemand ?

  4. So, how does a user change their own password if we are using Crowd?
