Users can change the password that they use for Security Analytics authentication in the Profile View > Preferences panel. The password of the user is updated on Security Analytics Core services, unless the user is the admin user. The password of the admin user does not propagate to Core services.
Note: For Core services, this applies to untrusted connections only. When a Core service uses a trusted connection, the user does not enter a password so no update is required.
To change your Security Analytics password:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Profile.
- In the options panel, select Preferences.
The Preferences panel is displayed with the General tab open.
In the Authentication section, in the Current Password field, enter your current password that you used to authenticate Security Analytics.
In the New Password field, enter the password you want to use for the next login.
In the Confirm Password field, re-enter the same password to confirm.
You will be logged out from Security Analytics for the changes to take effect. The new password becomes effective form the next time you log on to Security Analytics.
