The superadmin user
If the value of the configuration property com.unblu.storage.createSuperAdmin is
true, Unblu creates a superadmin as part of the initial Collaboration Server installation. You can specify the username in the configuration property com.unblu.storage.superAdminUsername. If no username is provided, Unblu generates a username.
There are two ways to set the initial password for the superadmin user, depending on the configuration property com.unblu.storage.superAdminPassword:
If the property isn’t empty, the superadmin password is set to whatever value the property has.
If the property is empty, Unblu generates a random password and stores it in a file called
credentials.txt. The file is located either within the directory specified in com.unblu.logging.outputDirectory (if present) or in the system’s default temporary folder.
|Store this password securely! It’s needed to access the Agent Desk and to administer the installation.|
|The password file must be deleted after the initial server startup, otherwise the server doesn’t allow ordinary, non-superadmin users to log in.|
If the superadmin password is lost, a new one can be generated by setting the configuration property com.unblu.storage.resetSuperAdmin to
true and restarting the Collaboration Server. This causes Unblu to generate a new random password and store it in the file
credentials.txt, as if no value for the password had been provided during initial setup.
Once the server has restarted, set the aforementioned property to
false again, retrieve the password from the file, then delete the file from where it was generated.
