You can change the VMware Identity Manager connector admin user password from the connector admin pages at https://connectorFQDN:8443/cfg/login. However, if you do not remember the password or it expired, you can reset it from the virtual appliance.


  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager connector virtual appliance as the root or ssh user.
  2. Open the /usr/local/horizon/conf/config-admin.json file in a text editor.
  3. Change the passwordSet variable from true to false.
  4. Save the file.
  5. In a browser, open a new window and clear cookies, or open a new incognito or private window, and go to https://connectorFQDN:8443/cfg.
  6. Reset the passwords.

    Make sure that you create strong passwords. Strong passwords should be at least eight characters long and include uppercase and lowercase characters and at least one digit or special character.

    The admin user password must be at least 6 characters in length.
