    add-user.sh does not modify the password for existing user.

      I've tried it in interactive and non-interactive mode. The non-interactive result is shown:


      Roberts-MacBook-Pro:bin robertmonical$ ./add-user.sh manager changed


      * Error *

      JBAS015243: The user 'manager' already exists in at least one properties file.


      I have searched everywhere in http://localhost:9990/console and cannot find a user admin utility.

      It appears to me that there is no way to change a user's password. I can manually delete the user from the properties file(s) and then add it again.  Is this true?

      This is odd enough to me that I thought I would ask the question before logging an issue.


      The documentation here appears to be incorrect about the ability to modify a password:



      There was a related 7.0.x discussion in 2012 that implied user management was in the console and it apparently suggested a modification to the stanalone.xml file. Mine was different enough I did not poke around. This is my management tag in my standalone.xml
