Does the root password reset when upgrading?

  • 1.  Does the root password reset when upgrading?

    Hi!

    Older version of Jama. We're upgrading from 4.2.7 to 2015_2. Will the root password be reset once the upgrade is complete? If not, what are the ways to recover it?

    Best,

    James

    James, this value is stored in the database, so it should not reset when you upgrade (because I assume you're keeping the same data!). You can reset this with a database query. To reset the Jama root user password to 'password':
    update userbase set password='2d8ccb9f3d83be83c0db0ff2c3ee24b7' where userName='root';
