Change Password APIedit


A user’s password can be changed using the security().changePassword() method:

ChangePasswordRequest request = new ChangePasswordRequest("change_password_user", newPassword, RefreshPolicy.NONE);
boolean response =, request);


The returned Boolean indicates the request status.

Asynchronous Executionedit

This request can be executed asynchronously:, request, listener); 

The ChangePassword request to execute and the ActionListener to use when the execution completes.

The asynchronous method does not block and returns immediately. Once the request has completed the ActionListener is called back using the onResponse method if the execution successfully completed or using the onFailure method if it failed.

A typical listener for a Boolean looks like:

ChangePasswordRequest request = new ChangePasswordRequest("change_password_user", password, RefreshPolicy.NONE);
ActionListener<Boolean> listener = new ActionListener<Boolean>() {
    public void onResponse(Boolean response) {

    public void onFailure(Exception e) {

Called when the execution is successfully completed. The response is provided as an argument.

Called in case of failure. The raised exception is provided as an argument.
