By default the ambari credentials are Username: admin and Password: admin. If it is changed somehow then you can reset the Ambari admin credentials directly from the DB:

1. Log on to ambari server host shell

2. Run 'psql -U ambari-server ambari'

3. Enter password 'bigdata'

4. In psql: (following will reset ambari user "admin" password to "admin"

update ambari.users set user_password='538916f8943ec225d97a9a86a2c6ec0818c1cd400e09e03b660fdaaec4af29ddbb6f2b1033b81b00'  where user_name='admin'

5. Quit psql

6. Run 'ambari-server restart'

However if you are using HDP Sandbox then you might have to reset the admin credentials for the first time.

# ambari-admin-password-reset
