Fortunately, Yellowfin makes provision for these scenarios and provided us with a way to reset or change the administrator’s password. This will also work when you need to change users’ passwords, however it is recommended that you rather do this in the Yellowfin application using the User Management function.
To change your admin password, follow the easy steps below:
Copy the ResetAdmin.jsp file into the "[Yellowfin Installation directory]\appserver\webapps\ROOT\” folder. This file is located in the "[Yellowfin Installation directory]\development\examples\” folder.
The examples directory is part of the standard Yellowfin installation and contains code samples.
Enter the following URL in your browser and change the password. Remember to adjust the host and port number according to your environment.
Remove the ResetAdmin.jsp file from your server when you are done otherwise anyone can change passwords.
