ChangePassword Script (Scheduler)

The script change_password updates the password of the local-based authentication user admin of Scheduler. This script is located in the directory <DENODO_HOME>/tools/scheduler.

Syntax of the “change_password” script (Scheduler)
change_password -h <host> -p <port> -l <login> -P <password> [-vdpauth] [-o <oldLocalPassword>] -n <newLocalPassword>

-h <host>: Host name or IP address of the Scheduler server.

-p <port>: Port of the Scheduler server.

-l <login>: Login/Username to be used for authentication. If the option -vdpauth is supplied, use a valid username from VDP server user account. By default, if the option -vdpauth is not supplied, use username of the local-based Scheduler user account.

-P <password>: Password to be used for authentication. If the option -vdpauth is supplied, use a valid password from VDP server user account. By default, if the option -vdpauth is not supplied, use password of the local-based Scheduler user account.

-vdpauth: Optional. Performs authentication through VDP server. By default, if this option is not supplied, local-based authentication through Scheduler is performed.

-o <oldLocalPassword>: Optional. The old local password of the local-based authentication admin user. This option can only be used when using the -vdpauth option.

-n <newLocalPassword>: The new local password of the local-based authentication admin user.

You can encrypt both passwords with the command <DENODO_HOME>/tools/arn-index/encrypt_password "<password>". Then, copy the output of this command and pass it as an argument of this parameter, with the prefix encrypted. For example, -P encrypted:Gr16MjvuXhRzPtPH/yTXHw==.

An example of running the ping command is shown below:

Example 1:

change_password -h localhost -p 8000 -l admin -P "admin" -n "encrypted:wj8lN8TDVPzmFOCplpoUt7uCYVSVA01emJwR27MWPwHtuSek1Ds0FAo5GOFIoFXwpvq5s9mNtzLwnAq8T8RAReA4FfG4pUwYs6ZxrWYGNtoZTGxyvIGXtlDWTZ6Rs6J51DWMfD63ZkoBzEbtF63AMQ=="

This command updates the password of the local-based authentication user admin to new_admin_password using local-based Scheduler user account (in this example, we pass this new password encrypted).

Example 2:

change_password -h localhost -p 8000 -l vdp_user -P vdp_user -vdpauth -o old_admin_password -n new_admin_password

This command updates the password of the local-based authentication user admin to new_admin_password using VDP server user account.
