Overview

In Decisions, Administrators have the ability to reset an Account's password for the Decisions environment. In addition, a user has the ability to change their own password from the Portal. The Account password should be changed regularly for security purposes. 

The Change Password option is not available for users who are synced via Active Directory or using SSO. Please contact the Active Directory administrator about a password change in this regard.
