Stash Admin Password Recovery


I accedntly removed the JIRA User Server relationships btween Jira and Stash becuase I was removing old server locations.

Right now I can not login to Stash with admin or any other user.

How can I fix this?

When I try to ask for password for any user I get this message:

Your account details are read-only.
Please contact your administrator to change your password.

Please let me know if theres a way to recover from this mistake...

Stash uses embedded crowd so the instructions for JIRA will be very similar in regards to recovering the admin password

Basically you need to ensure you have an 'internal' user that has admin rights and set that users password to a known password (the link above has the hashed version of 'sphere' as the password)

Please contact Atlassian support and you can see this previous similar question.

Do you know SmartKey Password Recovery?

Maybe you can Google Search it.
