Jira 7.3.1 Mass Password Reset? Edited

Hi, what is the best way of going about force resetting passwords for the entire user base?


For example if all the passwords are compromised; what is the fastest and easiest way to wipe all passwords and require users to create new ones?

The only way I know to bulk change passwords is through a DB update.  You can use the process here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA043/Retrieving+the+JIRA+Administrator?_ga=2.6664370.1498118483.1505747693-2139828892.1496244810&_gac=1.83929835.1505839166.Cj0KCQjwgIPOBRDnARIsAHA1X3TNQwObR7IZViUajBRqA9S59hSWvtBYZzrViAjvIDPynBDmgrxvwg0aAjBoEALw_wcB#RetrievingtheJIRAAdministrator-2.Setthepassworddirectlyinthedatabase 

To make the password your own:

  1. Pick a user account
  2. Set its password to the password you want
  3. Read the database for the hash that's now in there
  4. Apply the password via DB update as explained in the confluence document above.
  5. Users would then need to perform a password recover to change it back to what they want.
