When a single user has access to multiple password-protected environments, it is often convenient to use a single username and password for all those environments that the user encounters. If the password needs to be changed or if the user's job functions are transferred to another user, the Environment Password Management Utility enables the user to update the password in all the environments located on a single host, simultaneously. This utility only updates passwords with matching parameters, such as Hostname, Username, Old Password, and Connect String. These updates can be made using the Environments interface.
To change the environment password for a user:
From the Workbench shortcut bar, select Environments > Environments.
Open an environment.
From the menu, select Environments > Update Password.
The Update Environments Password window opens.
In the Host Type field, select the host type.
The required fields change to match requirements of the selected host type.
Complete the fields in the Update Environments Password window.
The DNS name or IP Address of the system running the Oracle database instance.
The domain name to use if this is a Windows Server.
The username for the schema in the database that is used to make remote database connections.
The old password for the given username. The password is hidden, and can be changed by clicking the button to the right of the field.
The new password for the given username. The password is hidden, and can be changed by clicking the button to the right of the field.
