Alters the password for an existing user, OS_USER or PROGRAM ident.
The password of the ident given by ident-name is changed to the string given in password-string.
GROUP idents do not have passwords, therefore the ALTER IDENT statement cannot be used on a GROUP ident.
The password can only be changed by the ident or by the creator of the ident.
The password must be at least 1 and at most 18 characters long and may contain any characters except the space character. The case of alphabetical characters is significant.
The password string must be enclosed in string delimiters, which are not included as part of the password.
Change the user SAMMY's password to SamJo.ALTER IDENT SAMMY USING 'SamJo';
