how to change default Atlas UI admin password

Explorer

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
e7cf3ef4f17c3999a94f2c6f612e8a888e5b1026878e4e19398b23bd38ec221a

Step 2: Modify the users-credentials.properties file
# /etc/atlas//0/users-credentials.properties
#username=group::sha256-password
admin=ADMIN::e7cf3ef4f17c3999a94f2c6f612e8a888e5b1026878e4e19398b23bd38ec221a <---- replace this string
rangertagsync=RANGER_TAG_SYNC
::e3f67240f5117d1753c940dae9eea772d36ed5fe9bd9c94a300e40413f1afb9d

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.

Try adding new user entry to /etc/atlas/conf/users-credentials.properties file and then restart Atlas from Ambari and check the Atlas login

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.

@Vishal Gupta,

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
