    Hi Mohammed,

    the changing of a user's password interval is currently not supported in the zSecure Visual GUI. If you want the zSecure Visual client GUI to support this action, you should probably open an enhancement request for this function/feature. In that case, please also include a (detailed) description of the business justification/need for supporting this function/feature for your company.

    At the moment, changing a user's password interval can be done using our zSecure Admin ISPF UI when selecting a user ID with option RA.U (RACF administration - User) and then issuing line command "S" (for Show details) for the concerning user. You can then scroll down with F8 and overtype the current password interval field with the desired password interval value and press Enter. 

    Or as an alternative, you can also use the native RACF command "password user(<userid>) interval(<password interval>) to adjust the password interval of a single user ID.
