Change password option for users logging in to DWC console

Whenever a new user is logged in to DWC 9.5 ,there is no option to change his password . We dont have LDAP and presently we use file based authentication_config.xml only to change password.However,the user wants a "Change password" tab on his DWC console page so that he can be able to change his own password.

    This scenario has changed in V9.5 because Liberty does not support the local OS support for authentication and we changed from WAS to Liberty. Now, introducing local OS support in the product has security drawbacks, while using an external user registry has many advantages. Can you explain why these customers do not want to use an authentication tool that provides a better security?

    We have also exact the same problem. It is very strange that a user doesn't have a option to change his/her own password :-(.

    We have the same problem and our customer is not happy about it. I would have expected better from IBM. How are we supposed to recommend this tool to our clients with such an obvious and huge oversight? What other software does not allow a user to change his/her password.
