hi,

Background:
We have a portal where users login and can run isqlplus queries, currently they have to log in twice i.e. to the portal and the DB.

I've been asked to come up with a way to allow them to change their passwords.
Portal side is fine, i found a solution.
DB side, I do not know how to do it. I need a script to run when the user clicks the change password button.
If there's a way to bypass the isqlplus login screen, this would actually be the better solution because then I also solve the problem of them having to log in twice.

I hope you understand my problem and can help. Links to relevant sites are also welcome.
thanks.

Hi,
If users using ISQLPLUS then there is option for CHANGE PASSWORD.
Workspace >>>> Preferences >>>> CHANGE PASSWORD.

Taj

hi Taj, thanks for your quick reply.

the users do not get that screen, that's the one i use to write my queries which i then save as .sql and users access them through links available on the portal. when user clicks on one of those links he gets the isql*plus login screen (see attach1).
they don't have access to the change password option.

what i'm struggling with is: say i have a 'change password' html page with fields : old_password, new_password, confirm_password. the user will fill these in, click OK then the 'change password script' will be executed... this is the script i'm struggling to find/come up with.

thanks.
