WSO2 IoT Server has the admin user created by default. This user is also known as the super administrator as it has all the permissions assigned to it. The default username and password of this user is admin. In a production environment, if you are using the admin user for administration purposes, it is recommended to change the username and password. 

Follow the steps given below to change the username or password of the admin user:

If you only want to change the admin password and not the admin username, make sure to only change the password properties.

  1. Open the <IOTS_HOME>/conf/app-manager.xml file and configure the username and password fields that have admin assigned to it with the new password:

    <!--Admin username for the Authentication manager.-->
    <Username>{NEW_ADMIN_USERNAME}</Username>
    <!--Admin password for the Authentication manager.-->
    <Password>{NEW_ADMIN_PASSWORD}</Password>
     
    <!--Admin username for the API gateway.-->
    <Username>{NEW_ADMIN_USERNAME}</Username>
    <!--Admin password for the API gateway.-->
    <Password>{NEW_ADMIN_PASSWORD}</Password>
     
    <!--Administrator username to login to the remote DAS server.-->
    <DASUsername>{NEW_ADMIN_USERNAME}</DASUsername>
    <!--Administrator password to login to the remote DAS server.-->
    <DASPassword>{NEW_ADMIN_PASSWORD}</DASPassword>
