Ambari will not allow any user creation without having a valid ambari crdentials.

 

However, I have responded to a very similar query of yours in the other thread which you have opened here: 

https://community.cloudera.com/t5/Support-Questions/Create-new-Ambari-user-without-Ambari-admin-cred...

 

Please take a look at that thread , to reset  the password of any ambari local user to 'admin' and then later it can be changed to any desired password.

To reset of forgotten password to 'admin'

Once you remember the old admin credential (or have already reset to 'admin').
