(Doc ID 1064226.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 07, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle SQL Developer - Version 1.5 to 4.1 [Release 1.5.0 to 4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Checked for relevance on 18-Nov-2011


Symptoms

Do not see the option "Reset Password" at SQL Developer -> Connection -> Choose connection -> Right click for Property page
While connecting to user, it shows message that password is expired but "Reset Password" option (where there is option to change password) remains disabled.




This is working on a few SQL Developer instances but does not work on some others.
