UISP - Password Recovery


This short guide describes how to retrieve a list of all the UISP login names and how to perform password recovery when needed. This method should be used when email password recovery is not possible.

Password recovery

Back to Top

To change a user's password, specify the username as a parameter, and enter a new password when asked:

sudo ~unms/app/unms-cli set-password --username <username>

In case of any issues with two-factor authentication this command can be used to completely disable it:

sudo ~unms/app/unms-cli disable-two-factor --username <username>

When it is necessary to set super admin from outside of UISP GUI, this command is available

sudo ~unms/app/unms-cli set-superadmin --username <username>
NOTE: It is possible to use all of the commands above without the --username tag, to display the list of users instead of changing their password or disabling 2FA for them.
