OnCommand Workflow Automation 5.1

Reset the admin password created during installation


If you have forgotten the password of the admin user that you created during OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) server installation, you can reset the password.

  • You must have admin privileges for the Windows system on which you have installed WFA.

  • The WFA services must be running.

  • This procedure resets only the password of the admin user that was created during the WFA installation.

    You cannot reset the password of other WFA admin users that you created after the WFA installation.

  • This procedure does not enforce the password policy that you have configured.

    You must either enter a password that complies with your password policy or change the password from the WFA user interface after you have reset the password.

  1. Open a command prompt and navigate to the following directory: WFA_install_location\WFA\bin\

  2. Enter the following command:

    wfa --admin-password [--password=PASS]

    If you do not provide a password in the command, you must enter the password when prompted.

  3. At the command prompt, follow the on-screen instructions to reset the admin password.
