Changing AppScan® Source user passwords

To be able to change an AppScan® Source user password, you must have Manage Users permissions and the change must be made in AppScan® Source for Analysis. If you do not have this permission, have your administrator change your password for you, following the instructions in this topic. If your AppScan® Enterprise Server is configured to use LDAP authentication or Windows authentication, this topic does not apply.

About this task

Important: This topic applies only if you have upgraded to AppScan® Source version 10.0.2 or higher from a 10.0.1 or earlier version of the product. New installations of AppScan® Source version 10.0.2 do not have this functionality; all user administration of new AppScan® Source installations occurs in AppScan® Enterprise.

    • Select the user and click the Edit User button.
    Note: You cannot change the password of an AppScan® Enterprise Server user from AppScan® Source.
  3. In the Edit User dialog box, enter a new password and then type the password again in the Confirm Password field.
