Reset the password of a user in OpenELIS (lab system)?

How can I reset the password of a user in OpenELIS (I forgot the password)?

One way to change the password of a user is to login as admin (or a user with Administrator privilege), and then go to Administration -> Manage User, and to “Edit” the user, and set a new password.

But, if I am Admin, and I forgot my password, then I can’t login to change password. In that case some DB update might help. Anyone has any ideas?

The following update query to clinlims database should reset the password of admin user to ‘adminADMIN!’

update login_user set password = ‘n2OrWHXVm/BQsgd1YZJoCA==’ where login_name = ‘admin’;

I have documented this here: https://bahmni.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=48889888#LabSecurityandAccessControl(OpenELIS)-ResetPasswordofaUser

I used this method, but openelis is still telling me that “Your password has expired. Please contact system administrator”. is there another way ?

Thanks for your help @binduak

It’s OK now! i just modified the password_expired_dt in the login_user table of clinlims database to a future date.

I hope that it will help someone else
