Changing Your Password
Some of the Contrail Service Orchestration components—such as Administration Portal, Configuration Designer, Resource Designer, and Network Service Designer—have a common password. When you change the password from any of these GUIs, the new password is saved in Contrail and applies to all the GUIs.
To change your password:
- Click the administrative username located at the right
side of the top banner.
A drop-down list appears.
- Click Change Password.
The Change Password page appears.
- Change your password following the guidelines provided in Table 1.
- Click OK.
You are logged out of the system. To log in to the GUI again, you must use your new password. Other sessions logged in with the same username are unaffected until the next login.

Note: You cannot proceed to the next step if the password strength indicator shows that the password is weak.
Reenter the password for confirmation.
You can select the Show Password option to view the password.
