Change Password API

The Change Password API enables you to submit a request to change the password of a user. Every user can change their own password and users with the manage_security privilege can change passwords of other users.

To change the password of the logged in user, submit a POST request to the _xpack/security/user/_password endpoint:

POST _xpack/security/user/elastic/_password
{
  "password": "x-pack-test-password"
}

A successful call returns an empty JSON structure.
