Reset the password for the elastic useredit

You might need to reset the password for the elastic superuser if you cannot authenticate with the elastic user ID and are effectively locked out from a cluster.

To reset the password:

  1. Log into the Cloud UI.
  2. From the Deployments page, select your deployment.

    Narrow the list by name, ID, or choose from several other filters. To further define the list, use a combination of filters.

  3. From your deployment menu, select Security.
  4. Select Reset password.
  5. Copy down the auto-generated password for the elastic user.

The password is hashed after you leave this pane, so if you lose it, you need to reset the password again.
