Lockout recovery process for Stash

I followed the steps for recovery process of stash -:

  1. Edit the <Stash installation directory>\bin\setenv.sh file (or setenv.bat on Windows) and add the "-Datlassian.recovery.password=temporarypassword" argument to the JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS property. The property value must be non-blank, and should look like this when you've done that:



    Here we are using "temporarypassword", but you should use your own value.
  2. Start Stash.
  3. Log in to Stash using the 'recovery_admin' username and the temporary password specified in Step 1.

But now I don't know how should I repair the stash configuration.

    4) Repair your Stash configuration. We strongly recommend that you do not perform other actions while Stash is in recovery mode.


Please help me in setting up the user name and password of stash.

Hi Uttam, Could you please provide further details about the issue you were facing, that led you to use the Lockout Recovery process? Obviously it's something related to login, but I'd like to know further details on this, as: * What do you see when trying to login with any user? Is there any apparent error? * Is Stash connected to any external user directory? If so you may need to go to Administration > User Directories and confirm it is properly connecting to the external directory. * You may also enable debug and attempt to login with some user to check if the logs show you anything. You can enable debug at Administration > Support > Logging and Profiling, selecting Enable debug logging and saving it. You can then try to login and, having the login failing, you can check at your atlassian-stash.log which is located at your $STASH_HOME/log directory. Regards, Gustavo Refosco
