    Hey Joseph,

    If APM is configured with local security, then it uses users.xml file.This file uses the encrypted password for the users. The password can be encrypted with the help of SHA2encoder.sh/SHA2encoder.bat (tools directory). Copy the generated password and paste it in users.xml file in the resptecd line for admin user.

    Kindly follow the below link for detailed information that how to generate password and update the users.xml:

    Thanks,

    Hi Joseph,

    In <home>/config, There is a file called users.xml, there is the user admin.
    You can save the password as plain text, if you wish.

    Now, if you want to encrypt it, there are several ways, but the easiest one is to change the word true to false, so that when you restart the services,
    the system automatically encrypts it, what you should consider is that when you change the true to false, CA APM will consider all passwords that are written as plain text, and will encrypt it again.

    To change the password, you do not need to restart services, unless you want to encrypt it through the process that I indicated.

    Regards
