titleLDAP plugin

When the LDAP plugin is installed and activated, it is no longer possible for users to change their password. Then, only system administrators can do so through Settings > Users > Change password.

FAQ

I lost the admin password

In case you lost the admin password of your SonarQube instance, you can reset it by executing the following query:

Code Block
update users set crypted_password = '88c991e39bb88b94178123a849606905ebf440f5', salt='6522f3c5007ae910ad690bb1bdbf264a34884c6d' where login = 'admin'

This will reset the password to admin.
