This note provides code that enables a DBA to prevent certain users from changing their password. This can be useful in environments where many users log on to the database with a single account. In situations like this, it is very important to guarantee that no user can change the password, thus preventing other users of this common account to login.
The following function can be used to prevent a user from changing their password. This function requires use of a USER PROFILE to activate the function. This script must be run while connected as the SYS user. Next, create a profile that will contain a limit PASSWORD_VERIFY_FUNCTION associated with that previously created verify function. This profile can be assigned to all users who are not allowed to change their password.
Give it a whirl.
