DPS Platform Administration
Also available as:

Change the Local Admin Password

The local DPS admin password is set during DPS installation. You use the local admin role when you log in to DPS the very first time. From DPS Platform, you can change the password for the local admin. You cannot change the password for LDAP users from the DPS UI, nor can you retrieve or reset the local admin password if you forget it.


  1. In the DPS Platform UI, click the (Admin) icon.

  2. Click Change Password.

  3. Enter the new password.


The password cannot be retrieved or reset by any user. If you forget the password, you must contact Hortonworks Support to reset the password.
