How to reset the TSOM default administration [admin] password

Technote (FAQ)


Question

TSOM's default userid when installing TSOM is 'admin'. This userid has an initial password of 'password'. If the password is changed and subsequently lost/forgotten, is there a way to reset it?

Answer

All TSOM login credentials are kept in the TSOM database in a table named "TSOM_USER". This table has several fields, most important of which are the "NS_USER_NAME" and "PASSWORD" fields.

  • NS_USER_NAME: Contains the short-name or "User Name". This is the name entered when logging into both the TSOM and jReport interfaces.

  • PASSWORD: Contains an MD5 hash of that user's password.

You may set any userid's password by updating the password field with the MD5 hash of the desired password.


    Example:

    Have your database administrator run the following SQL command to reset admin's password to 'password'.

    update tsom_user set password='5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99' where ns_user_name='admin'

    ('5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99' is the MD5 hash of 'password'.)
