How to change the CA NIM SM password:   

We are trying to open tickets in Service Now from OPSMVS via CA Normalized Integration Management (NIM) for Service Management (SM).  Looking at the documentation at it's been told to use user nimadmin and password nimadmin.  It is not working.  I am receiving a 403.  Where is that defined? Can I change it?  Can I create more users?  Which file I need to customize?




Release : 13.5

Component : OPS/MVS


You can change the nimadmin password via NIM GUI using the following steps:
1. Login to NIM application using nimadmin/nimadmin  and click on Authentication tab

2. Click on CA NIM User Configurations  and then it will display all user details  and click on the edit button for nimadmin so it will open a new pop up for password change.
