How do i reset admin password?


I forgot the admin password is there a way to reset it?

Forgot Password

There is sadly not built in way to easily do this.

The below instructions should work for sqlite3. If you use MySQL or Postgres the SQL command should also work.

$ sudo sqlite3 /var/lib/grafana/grafana.db

sqlite> update user set password = '59acf18b94d7eb0694c61e60ce44c110c7a683ac6a8f09580d626f90f4a242000746579358d77dd9e570e83fa24faa88a8a6', salt = 'F3FAxVm33R' where login = 'admin';
sqlite> .exit

The above command sets the password for the username admin. If you changed the username for your admin user you need to modify the command accordingly. Since the passwords are hashed in the database it looks like the password is set to just random text.

Login issue with Grafana

Thanks! The cli command failed for me on 5.0.4 (even with extra params and cd’ing into the supposedly right dir) but this worked.
