We would like to change ipadmin password to limit the scope of its access. Is there an official way to change it? We are thinking to remove it from the application-users.properties and application-roles.properties files and then user add-user.sh to add it back.
Release : 12.6.8
Component : SIGMA-Identity Suite
One can remove the user entry from application-users.properties in order to revoke Admin UI application access to IP admin with a CAUTION that access is NOT possible to Admin UI once the entry is removed. Admin User credentials can be added back via add-user script and access can be granted again without any side effects. No restart required.
One can change admin user password using add-user(.bat/.sh) script. While executing this script, it prompts an option “Update the existing user password and roles” to change user’s password.
P.S: As we already know that Sigma v14.x offers Reset Password functionality right from the application UI instead of using script.
