Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (formerly HTML DB) - Version 4.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This note assumes that end users of APEX are authenticated using APEX Authentication.


End users of APEX applications are not prompted to change their passwords on their first login to the system.

User accounts are using native APEX Authentication, and when logging in and authenticating, APEX fails to prompt them to change their passwords even if the individual user account property "Require Change of Password on First Use" is set to "Yes."
