Managing stored credentials

HCL Connections does not create nor store user names and passwords. Instead, it uses the user credentials that already exist in your LDAP directory for authentication. HCL Connections does not store administrative user IDs and passwords either. It does, however, create and store references to existing administrative user credentials. You can make changes to those references.

User credentials

To change a user's password, you must change the password in the LDAP directory that you are using to store user data. HCL Connections does not provide a method that administrators can use to change user credentials. Use the methods in place in your organization for changing user credentials. Alternatively, you can refer to the documentation provided with the LDAP directory that you are using.

Administrative credentials

When you install HCL Connections, it creates a set of references to the administrative user credentials it needs to access other tools and services to configure HCL Connections. Refer to the following topics for information on how to update these references.
