About changing another user's capabilities

You must be an administrator and your user account must be assigned to a group that has greater capabilities than the group the user is assigned to if you want to change another user's capabilities or account information.

The changes you can make include:
  • Change the capabilities of a user
  • Change the comment about a user
  • Change the full name of a user
  • Change the ageing characteristics of a user’s password
  • Change the name of a group
Note: You cannot create or change a group, a user, or a role, to have more capabilities than you have.

If you want to change the password of another user, your account must also be assigned to a group that has the security-password-change-others capability.
