Hello, I try to change the default Atlas admin UI password using following steps but it does not work.
Step 1: Generate the sha256 password string
# echo -n "Password" | sha256sum
Step 2: Modify the users-credentials.properties file
admin=ADMIN::e7cf3ef4f17c3999a94f2c6f612e8a888e5b1026878e4e19398b23bd38ec221a <---- replace this string
Note: Replace sha256 string which was generated in step one.
Step 3: Navigate to Ambari and restart the Atlas service.
Step 4: Login with the new password.
But it does not work. Any instructions or missing step in the above procedure. Thank you.
Hello Nixon, I am not adding new user. I am trying to change the password for the existing admin user. I change the user-credentials.properties file but no success. Thanks for offering the help.
I was able to login with password for admin user in /etc/atlas/conf/users-credentials.properties file.
Ensure that you are doing it same host where Atlas server is running, users-credentials.properties file is present on all HDP hosts.
In a cluster managed by Ambari, the Atlas admin password for the File Authentication mode must be changed from inside Ambari Server or it will be rewritten after a service restart. This value may be found in section
Configs-> Advanced -> Advanced atlas-env -> Admin password
