User Accounts

You can create and edit user accounts as well as view when each user has last logged in and each users login count. After you have created the account for new users, send them an email with the URL of the application along with their user name and password.

Tip: To create a secure password, use a combination of upper and lowercase letters and special characters such as _ or ! or ).

Changing the default admin password

There are two ways to change the administrator user's password. You can follow the instructions above for editing accounts or you can reset the ADMIN user password in the Datameer property files.

To reset the admin user password in the property files:

  1. Open the Datameer file: das-env.sh 
  2. Remove comment tag on: # export ADMIN_PASSWORD_RESET=true
  3. Restart Datameer using property --resetPassword
  4. When Datameer has restarted, the administrator user's password will be reset to the default as written in the default.properties file.
  5. Enter this default password and the admin user's password may then be changed to a new unique password in the user account settings user interface.
  6. When complete, go back to the das-env.sh file and comment the line back in so the password will not revert to the default upon restarting Datameer.

 

Deleting a user

To delete a user:

  1. Mark the radio box the user to delete.
