By default, only the admin user can connect to the Back Office with the following default credentials:

  • login: "antidot"
  • password: "change_on_install"

It is strongly recommended to change the default password.

On the server hosting the Back Office environment, run the following command:

As antidot user

wget --post-data='"$NEW_PASSWORD"' --header='Content-type: application/json' 'http://localhost:36080/bo-ws/root/password?afs:login=login://antidot:change_on_install@Antidot&afs:method=put'

Where $NEW_PASSWORD must be replaced by the new admin password.

It might be required to deactivate the proxy to perform the request in localhost by running the following command:

unset http_proxy
