The research hub gives you the ability to reset a lost or forgotten password so you can re-enter the system and access your projects.
Resetting Your Own Password
First, when attempting to log in to the research hub, click the "Forgot your password?" link towards the bottom of the screen:
Then enter the email address you used to set up your account and click "Send Password":
Now, open your email and check your inbox for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. It could take a few minutes for the email to arrive. Click the link within the body of the email to reset your password. The link will take you to a screen where you can reset your password for the research hub.
After resetting and confirming your new password, you will be automatically directed to the home page of your research hub.
Resetting Other Users' Passwords
Via the Company Page
To reset another user's password from the company page, first click your company name/logo to access your company page:
Then locate the user in the "Users" tab and click their email address to open the Edit User window:
In the Edit User window, click "Reset Password":
An email is automatically sent to the user with instructions to reset their password.
Via the Command Line
Requires Decipher Cloud
reset-links.py can be used to generate password reset links for an arbitrary number of Research Hub email addresses.
Similar to clicking "Forgot your password?" at the main login screen, this script generates password reset URLs that can be used to create a new password for a given email address.
Note: The temporary password reset link expires after one hour of its creation.
The syntax for the
reset-links.py script is below:
here reset-links.py EMAIL EMAIL EMAIL
here reset-links.py email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
The above command will generate the following results:
firstname.lastname@example.org: https://v2.decipherinc.com/login/reset?token=q9jmdfvwgm7du939 email@example.com: https://v2.decipherinc.com/login/reset?token=z7k3eydnaleivzzi firstname.lastname@example.org: https://v2.decipherinc.com/login/reset?token=lsken38ghal12igK
The owners of these email addresses can use the generated URLs to access the following page where they can create a new password.
Via the umanage Script
Requires Decipher Cloud
You can reset the password of a SSH/shell user account using the following
umanage password user
Where "user" is the shell username.
This will not reset user's portal password.
