Hello,

Your system already has a standard password modification process.

If you intend to use something else (especially if you want to write some new thing to do this), i'd suggest you talk with the security people for your system and make sure this will be acceptable. If it is permissable, they may also be able to provide guidance on how you might proceed on that system.

As dick said in mainframe each and every process are Standardized.
Thats how mainframe is still in effective .

Its like in your home you can do anything but in railway platform you have to follow some rules(so that we can use the platform effectively).

Use PASSWORD command in Option 6, enter
Code:
PASSWORD PASSWORD(oldpswd newpswd)
to change your own password.

If you use RACF, you can change your password by submitting a job:

Code:

//youridA JOB (YOUR JOBS ACCT INFO),'YOUR PGMR INFO', 
//     CLASS=?,MSGCLASS=?,NOTIFY=yourid,         
//     USER=yourid,PASSWORD=(OLDPASS,NEWPASS)   
//IEBFR14  EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                       


OLDPASS should be your old password
NEWPASS should be your new password
yourid should be your RACF userid in all places in the JOB card.
Code CLASS= and MSGCLASS= with your installation standards.
The IEBFR14 step is there just to make sure the job has at least one step to execute.

Once this job executes, it will verify your old password and will update it to the new password (as long as it meet your security standards). In the job's output, you will NOT see the contents of your PASSWORD statement.

You can then enter TSO LU yourid on the command line. The PASSDATE field should indicate it was updated with today's julian date 08.085. Of course in China, it may be 08.086.

Unless you have the SPECIAL attribute on your userid, you do not have authorization to alter another user's password.
