How to change a user password in batch

Hi,

We have a company policy to annually change the password in Windchill. I intend to make a small java class for this so this is done in batch taking a text file as input. Can someone shine a light on this how to approach ?

Best regards,

Bernard

Instead of writing your own java class, you could set up a password policy in your directory server to expire passwords after a year. If your users are being stored in WindchillDS, then you can find instructions to set up the password policy in the WHC. The below link contains instructions for both configuring a password policy and setting up notification emails to users when their passwords are about to expire:
