Clearing User Local Passwords

Junos Space Network Management Platform allows for an emergency password (authentication server down) to be set if in remote authentication mode, or allows the user to be handled locally (remote authentication fails) if in remote-local authentication mode. You can remove the local password you assign to users with remote or remote-local authentication by using the Clear Local Passwords action.

To remove one or more user local passwords, you must have User Administrator privileges.

To remove a user local password:

  1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface, select Role Based Access Control > User Accounts.

    The User Accounts inventory page appears.

  2. Select one or more users for which you want to remove a local password.
  3. Select Clear Local Passwords from the Actions menu.

    This option is disabled (dimmed) if you try to clear the password for a local user. When you mouse over the option, the following tooltip is displayed:The following users are local only, so their passwords cannot be cleared: user1

    The Clear Local Passwords dialog box appears.

  4. Click Clear Passwords.

    The local passwords of the selected user accounts are cleared.
