Recover a user password

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

If you have administrator credentials to UCP, you can reset the password of other users.

If that user is being managed using an LDAP service, you need to change the user password on that system. If the user account is managed using UCP, log in with administrator credentials into the UCP web UI, navigate to the User Management tab, and choose the user you want to change the password.

If you’re an administrator and forgot your password, you can ask other users with administrator credentials to change your password. If you’re the only administrator, use ssh to login directly into a manager node managed by UCP, and run:


docker exec -it ucp-auth-api enzi \
  "$(docker inspect --format '{{ index .Args 0 }}' ucp-auth-api)" \
  passwd -i
