Camunda web UI user/password


#1

Hi, a former colleague integrate Camunda and have it run in our cluster. Unfortunately, he’s no longer with the company, and now I can’t login to the web ui (i.e. :/app/welcome/default/#/login
I tried demo / demo, but it doesn’t work. Is there a way to find out the user/password, or perhaps to reset it? Thanks!

Do you have access to the database that contains the Camunda tables?


#3

Maybe, because I see there is database cred info in the github he created, I can give it a try.
I am totally newbie here, where would be the database (assuming on mysql) located, is it on same machine?
And what should I look for once I have access to it? Thanks!


#4

I found mysql server info on the log. Now I am inside the database, one table that caught my attention is ACT_ID_USER, is that the correct table? If yes, how do I reset the password (it’s SHA)? Or maybe I can add a new user?


#5

Yes, that’s the right table. If the existing users are not important, the easiest way would be deleting all users. The web applications will then ask you to create a new admin user when you access them the next time. That said, I recommend to make a backup before removing any data.

Cheers,

Thanks a lot! It works as you said (it asked to create first user)
I also need to delete the data in table ACT_ID_MEMBERSHIP.
