We don't have a good process right now. The only option is to restore that user's record from a backup, or overwrite it with the user record from a new fresh install.

I'm linking the upstream issue. We will almost certainly get this feature for free with pulp 3.0's new user/auth system.

Comment 6 Patrick Creech 2016-11-15 15:28:18 UTC
Requesting backlog, as pulp currently doesn't have the ability to reset password.

IF a user has forgotten the password, it can be reset by doing a database query to set it to a known hashed value from another pulp instance.

The Pulp upstream bug status is at NEW. Updating the external tracker on this bug.

Comment 11 pulp-infra@redhat.com 2016-11-21 18:57:01 UTC
The Pulp upstream bug priority is at Normal. Updating the external tracker on this bug.

Comment 12 Radek Bíba 2016-11-22 13:08:56 UTC

Would it alternatively be a good idea to delete the 'users' table? Here's what works for me:

mongo pulp_database --eval 'db.users.remove({})'
sudo -u apache pulp-manage-db # or another command? Please advise!

Then get the default password from the answers file:

awk '/rhui_manager_password:/ {print $2}' /etc/rhui-installer/answers.yaml

Finally, I'm able to launch rhui-manager with 'admin' / the default password.
