How do I start jenkins as an admin without having the need of entering credentials?

While installing jenkins I forgot to create users and launched it as admin for the first time. But the problem now is when I try to run it, it asks me for a username and password. What should I do now?

I found a way around:

  • Go to /Users/Username/.jenkins/
  • Open config.xml and remove the highlighted security tags
  • Open config.xml and remove the following code
  <useSecurity>true</useSecurity>
  <authorizationStrategy class="hudson.security.FullControlOnceLoggedInAuthorizationStrategy">
    <denyAnonymousReadAccess>true</denyAnonymousReadAccess>
  </authorizationStrategy>
  <securityRealm class="hudson.security.HudsonPrivateSecurityRealm">
    <disableSignup>true</disableSignup>
    <enableCaptcha>false</enableCaptcha>
  </securityRealm>
  • Now it works without any authentication
