Creating or Changing a Password

A user's account within EBMS is kept more secure by using a password. Unlike the user name, the password is case sensitive. A password containing upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and a symbol or two is more secure than a word or other comment text containing only letters.

The user's original password is set within the File > User Management option within EBMS. This option is available only to a user with administrative rights. Review the Creating Users and Assigning Rights section for more details on creating users.

A user's password should be changed periodically by completing the following steps:

  1. Select the Change Password option from the File menu within EBMS to open the following dialog:

  2. The user must enter the Old Password before a new password is created. Contact the user that created the account if the password is not known.

  3. Enter the New Password.

  4. Enter the new password again in the Confirm Password entry and click on the Ok button.
