Change Password to Alta Web Interface

Password could be changed by administrator. There are two ways to do it: web interface and console wizard.

Web Interface

Administrator can change password for any user by going to Settings > Users, then selecting the user's account and clicking on the action menu to choose the 'Reset Password':


Console Wizard

You may use console wizard to reset own password. On your server launch next command:

alta reset-password

Wizard ask you next details:

  • Service Name
  • User login
  • New password. Please note that password is not showing in the console on typing


If you have any issues with console wizard please check common errors:

Service not found

Service is not started or installed on another server

Permission denied

Service is more privileged than wizard. Launch command with sudo to raise privileges:

sudo alta reset-password

User not found

User with defined name is not found
