Login credentials invalid

Updated documentation can now be found via our YF community HERE

The Network admin changed the default credentials (from; test) to their own by editing the admin account under User Administration.

They now cannot access the site with errors being returned:-

Default credentials - ?You don't have the appropriate access to log on to this role?

Custom credentials - "Password does not match login name"

Is there anyway to reset these credentials so can gain access?

In your Yellowfin installation folder, look in the development/examples/ directory for a file called "ResetAdmin.jsp". Copy this file into your webapp directory (Yellowfin/appserver/webapps/ROOT/).

Then go to this jsp in your browser, eg:


You will be able to set a new password for any user.

Please note that this page is not secure. Once you are finished, you should delete the jsp from the webapp directory.
Awesome, thank you!

Phew...thought I was going to have to reinstall everything. This worked- thank you!
