How to allow/enforce user to change their own password

Post by _Alien » Mon Jun 01, 2020 4:37 am

Hi, our vpn is using Local authentication, is there any way to allow user update the password by themselves?

I have checked from here: https://openvpn.net/access-server-manua ... rmissions/
It seems it is possible with the setting of the CLient Web Server section, but I cant see it in on the GUI

Local Password
You can manage some password options for each user here. Enter the local password they will authenticate with when attempting to connect to the Access Server in the Password field. Below that, choose whether to allow password changes and/or enable password strength checking in the Client Web Server (CWS).

Allow password change from CWS:

Default = Inherit the group or global setting (defined in group permissions or in CWS settings).
Yes = user can change their password after logging in to the CWS.
No = user will not have an option to change their password and it must be managed by you or another administrator.

Login to Device using Admin Credentials. Navigate to Portals -> Domains -> Local Domains -> Click on Edit Configuration -> Enable Allow Password Change and Require Password change on next logon -> Click on Accept to save the configuration. Local user login will be prompted for changing the password.
