Forgotten password. 


The following instructions will assist you in manually resetting the test.manager roles password back to "test.manager". If you are a SaaS user and you forgot your password, please contact Zephyr support.


1. Make a backup of your database.

As administrator, open a command line prompt and navigate to: 
<Zephyr Root>\backup_restore\bin


Following the on screen instructions. Keep the backup in a safe place until after you have confirmed the password change is successful.

2. Stop the Zephyr Server.

Navigate to:

>net stop zephyrserver

Wait for the server to stop.

3. Connect to the MySQL datbase.

Navigate to:

>bin\mysql -uroot -proot itcc

>update user set password="6cf5b5v6n38ed8a0538104d745c17f6a873b732b04b8" where id=1;

5. This has changed the test.manager password to "test.manager"
