Editing existing accounts
You can edit existing accounts, such as the account name, password, and other settings. For example, if someone forgets their password, you can reset it for their account and inform them of the new password.
For information about duplicating or deleting accounts, see Duplicating and deleting accounts.
Warning  Don’t forget the account name and password that is assigned to the Full Access privilege set. If necessary, write it down and store it in a secure place. If you lose or forget this account name and password, you may not be able to access or change the file.
To edit an existing account:
Choose File menu > Manage > Security.
The Manage Security dialog box appears. The Accounts tab lists the accounts defined for this file.
Choose an option from the Account is authenticated via list.
Choose User must change password on next login.
Note  In most cases, an account that is shared by multiple users should not force a password change upon first login. Instead, you should specify a password and provide it to the users that need it. Also, the privilege set for a shared account should not permit password changes. See Editing other privileges.
For Account Status, choose whether you want the account to be active or inactive. Users cannot open a database using an inactive account name and password.
For Privilege Set, choose the privilege set you want to use with this account.
For Description, enter the account description you want.
If you’ve finished working with accounts and privileges, click OK. In the dialog box that appears, enter an account name and password that is assigned the Full Access privilege set, and click OK.
Passwords are case-sensitive. For example, if you specify a password as zFootBallz2, FileMaker Pro will not accept zfootballz2. When you’re entering a password for an account, you may want to make sure the Caps Lock key on your keyboard is not inadvertently enabled.
Account names are not case-sensitive. For example, if you specify an account name as Chris, the account user can successfully open the file by entering chris or CHRIS as the account name.
To automatically log in each time a file is opened, choose File menu > File Options and specify the account name and password. See Setting file options.
