This is one of those features that should be enabled by default, right? Sorry, but there is actually a few steps in there, and some of them could be a bit difficult if you are not familiar with web code.
To start off, browse to
RDWeb/Pages in IIS Manager. Open
There you will find a setting named
PasswordChangeEnabled. Make shure it has
true as value.
Now open Explorer and browse to
C:\Windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages. There is two files we need to edit here.
Let’s start with
Sites.xml. Open it in notepad, or another text editor. Far down in the file, inside XML tag <xsl:template match=”/RDWAPage/NavBar”> you find a TD tag with the class
cellSecondaryNavigationBar. The table within this class is the one that controls the Help and Sign Out menu at the website
My goal is to put another link there named Change Password. To do so, I need to add the following to the code. (The highlighted code is what I added)
Then we need to update the file containing all the Language strings. Open the
en-US subfolder, and then edit
RDWAStrings.xml using something like notepad.
<rdwastr:strings ...> add
<string id="ChangePassword">Change password</string>.
Now, go to your RDWeb page and sign in. At the upper right you should have a new link.
Your users are now able to change their password without having to call you, and that’s a good thing!
