Change Admin Passwords

Account Administrator Password Updates

Resetting passwords for user accounts can be done via the "Your Account" link in the gear icon menu at the top right of API Creator. Users will see the list of account administrators (users belonging to the admin API), and their passwords can be overwritten from there.

Super Admin Password Update

While the super admin can also be reset from the "Your Account" gear icon menu, you must be logged in as the super admin user in order to do so. Alternately, it can be reset by visiting the "Set Admin Passwords" page, which will usually be available at https://<base_creator_url>/APIServer/setAdminPasswords.html [ex: https://yourCreatorURL.com/APIServer/setAdminPasswords.html].

Direct API Call

For larger deployments of Live API Creator products, it may be necessary to script or automate admin password updates. This can be accomplished by POST-ing to API Server through a special @authentication request:
 https://<base_creator_url>/APIServer/rest/abl/admin/v2/@authentication?enablePasswordChange!=true {
    "username": "{{adminUserName}}",
    "password": "{{currentPassword}}",
    "new_password: "{{newAdminPassword}}"
 }
