Repository Management with Nexus
As a logged in user, you can click on your user name in the top right hand corner of the Nexus user interface to expose a drop down with an option to Logout as well as to access your user Profile displayed in Figure 5.26, “Drop Down on User Name with Logout and Profile Options”.
Once you have selected to display your profile you will get access to the Summary section of the Profile tab as displayed in Figure 5.27, “Summary Section of the Profile Tab”.
The Summary section allows you to edit your First Name, Last Name and Email directly in the form.
In addition to changing your name and email, the user profile allows you to change your password by clicking on the Change Password text. The dialog displayed in Figure 5.28, “Changing Your Nexus Password” will be displayed and allow you to supply your current password, and choose a new password. When you click on Change Password, your Nexus password will be changed.
The password change feature only works with the Nexus built in XML Realm security realm. If you are using a different security realm like LDAP or Crowd, this option will not be visible.
The Profile tab can be used by other plugins and features to change or access user specific data and functionality. One such use case is the User Token access documented in Section 6.17, “Security Setup with User Tokens”.
