Resetting the Admin Account Password and Roles

In case of catastrophe, the default admin account password and roles can be reestablished for your IQ Server as follows:

  1. Shutdown your IQ Server if it is currently running.

  2. Run the following command inside your IQ Server directory (where your nexus-iq-server-[version].jar file is located).

    java -jar nexus-iq-server-[version].jar reset-admin config.yml

    Here you would replace [version] with your IQ Server version.

  3. You may now (re)start your IQ Server if desired.

The original admin account will be recreated with the default username "admin" and password "admin123". This will also revert the admin roles to the default state.
