Hi,

Try creating a user with role 'User manager'.

Hi - thanks for your reply. I would create the user manager role via GUI But that user is actually a tool. And in that tool we have to add the commands to allow that tool to ssh the F5, change users passwords and log it. So from command line, how we can change user passwords and save work. Thanks

Login into the tmos using the 'User manager' role and change password of other using below command.

modify /auth user testuser password mypassword

There are options to change the partiion level access, allow users to access bash etc.
