Send a new password by email (with an SMTP protocol)

If you forgot your connection password to Talend Administration Center, you can perform on of the following operations to send an email holding a link to a password resetting form:

  • click the Forgot your password? button. To activate this option and display the button, you have to activate an SMTP protocol in the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center. For more information on how to configure the SMTP protocol, see Setting up an SMTP protocol. If this Forgot your password? button does not display even though you activated SMTP, it can mean that this option has not been activated at installation time. In this case, contact your Administrator who will be able to enable it from the configuration.properties file. For more information about the configuration.properties file, see the Talend Installation Guide.

  • use the resetPassword the MetaServlet application For more information on MetaServlet, see Non-GUI operation in metaServlet.

  1. In the [Login] window, click Forgot your password?.

    An informative message is displayed on the [Login] window and the email with the new password is sent to the email address specified in the Login field.

  2. With this new sent password, log in to Talend Administration Center again and define a new customized password in the Users page. For more information about the Users page, see Changing user passwords.

Set the password to admin again (without SMTP protocol)

If you have not configured an email server, you can execute an SQL statement in the application database to set the user password to admin again.

  1. Open the database web console. To do so, go to the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center, expand the Database node and click the URL next to the Web Console field.

  2. In the database, execute the following statement:

    UPDATE `user` set `password`=0x21232F297A57A5A743894A0E4A801FC3 where id =<userID>;

    where 0x21... corresponds to the encrypted password admin.

    Note that you can find the ID (number) corresponding to the user for which you want to edit the password by executing this statement:

    select id, login from user;

  3. With this new password, log in to Talend Administration Center again and define a new customized password in the Users page.

    For more information about the Users page, see Changing user passwords.

    For more information about the advanced configuration you can perform on the Talend Administration Center database, see the Talend Installation Guide.
