Depending on your vCenter Single Sign On privileges, you might not be able to view or edit your Single Sign On user profile. However, all users can change their Single Sign On passwords in the vSphere Web Client.

The password policy defined in the vCenter Single Sign-On configuration tool determines when your password expires. By default, Single Sign-On passwords expire after one year, but your system administrator might change this depending on the policy of your organization.


The vSphere Web Client does not remind you when your password is about to expire. If your password expires and you are unable to log in to the vSphere Web Client, a Single Sign-On user with administrator privileges can reset it.


Log in to the vSphere Web Client using your vCenter Single Sign On credentials.


In the upper navigation pane, click your user name to pull down the menu.


Select Change Password and type your current password.


Type a new password and confirm it.


Click OK.
