Issue/Introduction

If the password of the DevTest built-in user id admin is lost, there is no way to recover it, but you can reset it.



Is there a way to recover the DevTest password for built-in user id admin as opposed to changing it? 

Cause

N/A

Environment

All supported DevTest releases and platforms.

Resolution

We cannot recover it, only reset it to its original value.

 

Execute DEVTEST_HOME\bin\resetadminuser.bat --reset on Windows.

 

Execute DEVTEST_HOME/bin/resetadminuser.sh --reset on Linux.

 

This will reset to the original value of admin.

 

Additional Information

You can change the password values of the built-in accounts from Identity Access Manager (IAM).
