Users chance password on first login



Hi, can I configure that Users have to change the password for PRTG usage after first login? So that I can create several Users with a default start password and Users have to change it if they login for the first time, like you can configure it under windows, for example?

access access-rights login user user-account

Hi there,

Unfortunately, there is no option in PRTG that would allow you to force a password reset after initial login. Therefore I am afraid that you need to tell the people that do not change their password, that this is needed for security reasons.

Best regards.
