Automate Non-DBSNMP Password Management

For users that are not the default monitoring user for DB targets (not the user that was configured during target discovery and hence, is not used for monitoring and metric collection), you can use the Change the Password for a Database User job type to automate password management.

When using a normal user including system, the job runs fine and the password is updated. However, if this is tried using sys as sysdba or any account with sysdba role, the following error is found in the job log

Error :
Not updating password for user with unsupported role 'sysdba' for user: SYS on target <db target>:<db type>
