How to reset the Administration Page password in FishEye or Crucible
If you have forgotten or misplaced the password for the Admin page (
http://<FECRU_URL>:<FECRU_PORT>/admin/admin.do), you can reset it manually.
To manually reset the admin password, please edit your
FISHEYE_INST/config.xml file (make a backup as well before editing). Note that the
FISHEYE_INST directory is your FishEye data directory, not the installation directory.
You will see something like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <config control-bind="127.0.0.1:8059" version="1.0" admin-hash="352353256326369233A801FC3">
To reset the password to "admin", please change the
admin-hash value so that it appears as
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <config control-bind="127.0.0.1:8059" version="1.0" admin-hash="21232F297A57A5A743894A0E4A801FC3">
Restart Fisheye for this to take effect. You should now be able to access the FishEye Admin page (
http://<FECRU_URL>:<FECRU_PORT>/admin/admin.do) with the password "admin". Please change this password immediately from the Admin area: click Change Admin password (under "Security Settings").
