Setting the workload password

To access non-SSO interfaces, each user and machine user must set a workload password. An administrator can set other users' workload passwords.

Required roles: All users can manage their workload passwords from the account management page. All users can manage their workload password from CDP CLI, but this action requires an API access key, which can only be generated by users with the IAMUser role. As a CDP administrator or PowerUser, you can manage the workload password for all user accounts.

Set your own workload password

Steps

  1. Sign in to the CDP web interface.
  2. Click on your user name in the bottom left corner and then select Profile.
  3. Click Set Workload Password:
  4. In the dialog box that appears, enter the new workload password twice.
  5. In the Environments text box, All is pre-selected so that the workload password is synced to all environments by default.
  6. Click Set Workload Password. A message appears saying that the password is set successfully.
  7. Click Close.

Use the following command to set workload password:

cdp iam set-workload-password --password <value>
