  3. In a terminal where Privacera is installed:

    a. Create a vars.password.yml file:

    vi ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/custom-vars/vars.password.yml

    b. The passwords for Portal and Ranger Admin have been changed using the steps above, now set the new passwords in PORTAL_PADMIN_PASSWORD for Portal, and RANGER_ADMIN_PASSWORD for Ranger Admin.

    PORTAL_PADMIN_PASSWORD: "<new portal password>"
