Emergency Password Reset ToolLast Updated: 12/03/2015 Introduced in Verision: 2.0
The Emergency Password Reset Tool allows a user on the host machine to reset any user’s password from the command line. This utility is particularly useful in the event that an administrator’s password needs to be reset, or after a malicious intrusion.
Our example assumes that the platform has been installed in the default path, and that the Administrator has not been changed from the default email@example.com.
Open a command prompt and navigate to C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Services Manager.
decisions.passwordreset.exe and press Enter. When executed without any arguments, the Emergency Password Reset Tool will return instructions for its usage, as well as an example.
decisions.passwordreset.exe firstname.lastname@example.org newpasswordto reset the administrator’s password to “newpassword”. Upon changing the administrator’s password, the platform will stop and restart its services. You will also be advised to set a new password for this account from within the portal, as a sound security practice.
