Is there a way to allow a user to change passwords for other users without giving them access to the entire user profile? We have a small shop, and I'd like to share this ability with some of our late night staff. However, I'm reluctant to give them the ability to change user type, special authorities, etc. (inadvertently or otherwise). Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can write a CL program which would do a CHGUSRPRF USRPRF(&profile) PASSWORD(&newpass). Then when you compile the CL use the keyword USRPRF(*OWNER). Have the program owned by a security officer profile and it should do the job.

    You can also use CHGUSRPRF ??USRPRF() ??password() to just allow access to the password.
