"" Root User

We recommend rotating the AppCenter root user password periodically for increased security.

When rotating the root user password, consider the following password requirements:
  • Minimum of 8 characters
  • At least one lowercase character
  • At least one uppercase character
  • At least one number
  • At least one special character
  • No username in the password
Only the root user can change the root user password.
  1. Go to the User API Swagger URL.

    For example, replace base-domain with your domain as shown here:

    https://base-domain/api/user/swagger-ui.html

  2. Under Token Controller, next to /token Authentice a User, select Post.
    The Parameters and Responses panes appear.
  3. Select Try it out.
  4. In the Example Value code box, enter the existing root user credentials.

    For example:

    {
    “password”: “PasswordNow1!”,
    “username”: “root”
    }
    
  5. Select Execute.
  6. From the Response headers, locate and copy the authorization token.
  7. Under User, next to /Updates a User, select Patch.
    The Parameters and Responses panes appear.
  8. Select Try it out.
  9. Next to Authorization, in the string (header) code box, type Bearer, followed by a space, then paste the authorization token.

    For example:


    Sample authorization token entry
  10. Next to username, in the string (path) code box, type root.
  11. In the Example Value code box, enter a new root user password that meets password requirements.

    For example:

    {
    	"username": "root",
    	"password": "PasswordNew1!"
    }
  12. Select Execute.
    If the root user password has been updated successfully, response 200 appears.
  13. Log in to AppCenter using the new credentials.
