Maintain Logins and Passwords

Changing default credentials before deploying the server in a production environment is crucial. Using default login information poses a significant security risk by making the system vulnerable to unauthorized access. This section provides guidance on enhancing the security of the WSO2 Identity Server console by updating login details.

Change the super admin password

To change the default admin password, log in to the WSO2 Identity Server MyAccount portal with admin credentials and change the password

Recover a password

If you forget your password, you can recover it using the password recovery option available on the WSO2 Identity Server.

Log in with an email address

You can configure the WSO2 Identity Server to authenticate users using an email address instead of a username. Refer to Enable Using Email Address as the Username for further information.
