What is the default Jenkins password?

0 votes

I'm using a EC2 server instance but I need to install software on the Jenkins server.

I’ve used this command:

sudo –s –H –u jenkins
sudo cabal install quickcheck

But then it asked for a password and I cant find it anywhere

Try this:

-stop jenkins

- go and edit /var/lib/jenkins/config.xml

- Change <useSecurity>true</useSecurity> to false

- Restart Jenkins: sudo service jenkins restart

- Navigate to the Jenkins dashboard to the "Configure Security" option you likely used before. This time, setup security the same as before, BUT set it to allow anyone to do anything, and allow user signup.

- Go to www.yoursite.com/securityRealm/addUser and create a user

- Then go change allow anyone to do anything to whatever you actually want users to be able to do. In my case, it is allow logged in users to do anything.

Just execute the following command:

This should display the password of your Jenkins

Change the shell to /bin/bash instead of bin/false and you should be able to log in without password by sudo su - jenkins.

Command to change the shell is:

chsh -s /bin/bash jenkin
