Release : 9.x 10.x 11.x

Password changes are tracked via system audit messages. In the audit viewer you will find an event similar to the below:

NONE aebda644cc55356754006057e3fc41f6 <NODE> 20200319 12:54:05.939 INFO  InternalUser #aebda644cc55356754006057e3fc4098 (test) updated (changed hashedPassword, changed changePassword)

If the change was made as the result of the current password expiring (per your password policy) this is tracked in the database in the password_history table. This only applies to password changes due to expiration.
