[User Management] Reset Password



Reset Password

To reset a password for a user, first select the user from your list of users.




You now have a choice to make.

Do you want to reset the users password to something they will be forced to reset once they login?

If you want to reset the users password to something they will be forced to reset. Click here to be expedited to the "General Settings" explanation.

--OR--

Do you simply want to reset the users password to something they will continue to use?

If you simply want to reset the users password to something they will continue to use, then continue the section below.



Next, click on "Reset Password" which can be found near the top of the page on the "User Management Button Bar".


The "Reset Password" window will appear.

You can click on the "Randomize" button and have gPanel generate a strong random password.

If you do this be sure to document the new password so that you can tell the user later.



You can also manually enter a new password. This is a favorite of most system administrators because
it allows them the ability to reuse a common reset password, unfortunately this may create a security issue.





Once you have your new password entered be sure to document it before you click the "Reset Password" button.





Click the "Close" button when finished.
