    Default CSV Account creation, users must change password

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to use the "CSV import wizard" from the admin interface (Under the "Account" section).

    CSV file is like this:
    <email>,<displayed name>,<password>

    Account creation works great, but every user created that way must change is password at first connection.

    What I tried to do I to deactivate in the COS the right to user to change thier password.
    But it does not do the trick.

    Every usre created using this wizard _must_ change is password.

    And I don't want to

    Thanks for help.

    It is poor security practice to create accounts with a password (that other people know) and leave them unchanged.

    Sure !!!
    I totaly agree with that

    But in my case, the choice is not left to me...
    I have deployed a server for someone (another admin from another entity) and I am in charge of this.
    But that is what they want, they know the risks... me too and I am not responsible of this.

    Is their a way to bypass this security ?

    Thanks a lot.
