Reason: Identity Management Web UI users had to log on to client machines enrolled in Identity Management in order to be able update their reset or expired passwords. Result (if any): When Identity Management user with a reset or expired password logs to Web UI, the UI allows him to change the expired password and thus successfully authenticate and connect to Identity Management Web UI.

Description Dmitri Pal 2012-01-19 00:50:57 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

When we will activate form based auth we need to allow for password changes through the same interface.

Not a critical feature for the first pass, but if that's the main interface for some users then password changes need to be supported.

Comment 1 Rob Crittenden 2012-06-12 20:27:01 UTC
Fixed upstream.

master: d1e695b5d0323167d37eee340718eb5e65138716

For command-line based tests the URI is /ipa/session/change_password

You need to do a POST and provide user, old_password and new_password.

The password result is passed both in the resulting HTML page, but also in HTTP headers for easier parsing in web services:
  X-IPA-Pwchange-Result: {ok, invalid-password, policy-error, error}
 (optional) X-IPA-Pwchange-Policy-Error: $policy_error_text
