Usually, changing the password for an user is not an issue, but here is some other components to configure apart from changing the Administrator’s password.
One important point to bear in mind is that the password for IS Administrator user and MWS Administrator user must be the same.
In case of Adapters Notifications configured to be executed as IS scheduled tasks, it is always recommend you to disable any notification (this will remove the notification scheduled task from IS Scheduler) then perform password changes and enable the notifications back (this will create the notification scheduled task into IS Scheduler).
There are some additional configurations you will need to change manually, if they are used in your environment, after changing this password like packages WmTaskClient and WmMonitor and Remote Servers. Reloading these packages is needed. The restart of IS is not needed, but it is always recommendable after modifying some basic configurations.
A summary of steps to perform at IS side are as follows:
- Go to http://<ESB_Server>:ESB_port
- Under Security > User Management, select Administrator and click change password
- Under Packages > Management, select WmTaskClient (Home-Symbol) and change password
- Under Packages > Management, select WmMonitor (Home-Symbol) and change password
- Under Settings > Remote Servers, select Remote Servers Alias and change password
Regarding the MWS, steps to perform are as follows:
- Go to http://<MWS_Server>:MWS_port
- Under Administration > System-Wide > User Management > Users, select Administrator and sysadmin, change password
- Under Administration > My webMethods > Task Engine, change password
If you have portlets that access IS services using this account, a likely way to update them is using the CAF Application Runtime Configuration tool. Log in to MWS using “sysadmin”, go to relative URL /folder.admin.caf.app.runtime.config, and search for your application there. Under “Environment variables” you will find the default password for web service connectors.
