Changing the Console’s User/Password¶
Is confusing. It’s only applicable if you’ve disabled RBAC and are still using Basic Auth. Customers would like more information about the current Console.
Use case was a customer that borked the initial password on install and could never log into RBAC. He wanted to know how to change the firstname.lastname@example.org password in the initial setup without using RBAC.
cd /opt/puppet/share/console-auth/ /opt/puppet/bin/rake db:create_initial_admin['email@example.com(1)','password(2)']
(1) Cannot already exist
(2) Cannot contain commas apparently
