The superuser account is the default admin account for Release Automation. If for some reason one forgets the password and is not having an alternate superuser account to reset the password via the user management section of the ASAP Administration UI.



The default password for the superuser account is 'suser'. The encrypted password value for the default password suser is '515483996667424e5eae87559fb6f67a'

The password can be updated by running the following SQL command:

UPDATE users SET password ='515483996667424e5eae87559fb6f67a' where id=1;

Following the SQL update the password can be reset to a desired value using the ASAP UI.


(Note: The SQL query syntax is compatible for MS SQL Server, and can be modified to suit the other support Database versions)
