Office 365 - Reset Service Account Password
This document describes how to set or modify an Office 365 service account's password.
In order to log into Outlook Web App, configure a desktop client or mobile device, the service account must have a password.
For instructions on how to access a service account, see: Office 365 - How to access a Service Account.
Important: Service Accounts can only be used by users who have NetID accounts within UW-Madison's Office 365 implementation. Microsoft licensing prohibits the use of these accounts by any external user - this means that external users cannot use the service account credentials to access the account. If you need to provide access to an external user, please request an appointment through your department's HR office.
As a domain administrator, log in to the Wisc Account Administration site with your NetID credentials.
Access the account by either:
- Selecting the domain and then searching for the account on the account listing page
- Searching for the exact email address in the search field -- located in the top right corner of the Wisc Account Administration site -- as pictured below:
- Select the Account Administration tab in the left-hand column to expand it into the list you see in the image below:
Select Reset Password
On the "Reset Password" page, enter the desired password and click Change Password button.
