Changing the HCL Digital Experience administrator password

HCL Digital Experience treats wpsadmin (the administrator) as any other user, just with more permissions granted. With a normal configuration, it is possible to change the wpsadmin or equivalent password through the user interface, just like any other user can manage their own password through the user interface. However, if the wpsadmin account is also used for more than just the administrator, then additional changes, outlined in other steps in this section, must be made to accommodate the change.
