Change Password for Privacera Services

Installed Services

The steps to change the login password for Portal and Ranger Admin were tested in an environment where the following services were installed using PM CLI:

  • Privacera Core Components
  • Dataserver
  • Discovery on Databricks


The following steps shows how you can change the login password for Portal and Ranger Admin:

  1. To edit the Portal password:

    In the Portal UI, go to Settings > UserManagement and then click Edit.

  2. To edit the Ranger password:

    In the Ranger Admin UI, go to Admin > Profile and click on Change Password tab.

  3. In the terminal where Privacera is installed, do the following:

    a. Run the command to create a vars.password.yml file.

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

    b. Add the following properties in the file. Since the passwords for Portal and Ranger Admin have been changed above, set the new password in PORTAL_PADMIN_PASSWORD for Portal, and RANGER_ADMIN_PASSWORD for Ranger Admin.

    PORTAL_PADMIN_PASSWORD: "<new portal password>"
    DATASERVER_PORTAL_LOGIN_USER_PASS: "<new portal password>"
    DISCOVERY_PORTAL_SERVICE_PASSWORD: "<new portal password>"
    RANGER_ADMIN_PASSWORD: "<new ranger password>"
    RANGER_USERSYNC_PASSWORD: "<new ranger password>"
    USERSYNC_RANGERUSERSYNC_PASSWORD: "<new ranger password>"

    c. Run the update.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager/
    ./ update

You can log in to Portal and Ranger Admin using the new passwords.
