    Password change in Oracle SQL Developer

    Just started with a new company and have a default login pw for Oracle SQL Developer 3.0.0.2. I have searched online and through the help menu and can not find how to change my password. Any ideas? Thanks,

    Do you want to change the password for the Oracle user or do you want to change the password that SQL Developer has stored?

    I have no idea what you mean with "click on the table", but the Oracle user password can be changed with ALTER USER

    Check the manual for details:

    Your Mother should be proud of you for being so clever.
    Why did you take the time to register, share this incredible knowledge with us,
    while responding to a thread that is almost 2 years old?

    Dear anacedent,

    Unfortunately this thread ended with no solution. So I just wanted to finish so that if anyone searches the same solution here would be happy.

    I guess your father also very happy for finishing 6k posts

    Enjoy!!

    you did not casually "see" this thread.
    you had to have actively Searched it out.

    beats paying for something like Golden32

    I registered just to commend your attitude. We need more netizens like guru2012 who add answers to questions that show up in the top of search engines like this one... even at the risk of deflating a few fragile egos.

    anacedent, it seems unlikely that karlthepagan is a sockpuppet. You can glean this from the fact that he's making fewer typos in his post than guru2012 tends to.

    And as karl has correctly pointed out, guru2012 has clearly done a good thing here, adding value to a post that comes up high in Google searches for exactly this question. It's certainly helped me. Not sure what's wrong with that.

    xkcd 386 is strong in you though. I like that in a man. I often feel the same.

    First I thank guru2012 for taking the time to post a solution to this thread. Here is a person that was lead to knowledge (the thread) and did think (about helping somebody else). This action puts Guru in a class above anacedent who thinks (based on that silly signature following each post) that his or her elite status allows the meaningless comment posted about guru. I am here to celebrate the 2+ year anniversary of guru's reply because I found this thread being stuck with SQL Developer (my company opted out of Toad) having to change my password. Here is an old quote I just made up... "People who think they walk with their feet off the ground fall farther and harder than common sense good folks who walk with their feet on the ground helping each other". Anacedent I am sure will reply with some worthless drivel that will take up more time instead accomplishing some work. It is no matter to me because I do have plenty of work to do and will not return to this thread for a long, long, time if ever.
