If the password of the DevTest built-in user id admin is lost, there is no way to recover it, but you can reset it.


Is there a way to recover the DevTest password for built-in user id admin as opposed to changing it? 

All supported DevTest releases and platforms.

We cannot recover it, only reset it to its original value.


Execute DEVTEST_HOME\bin\resetadminuser.bat --reset on Windows.


Execute DEVTEST_HOME/bin/ --reset on Linux.


This will reset to the original value of admin.


Additional Information:

You can change value of the admin account on the Server Console in Administration in DevTest versions 9.1.0 and earlier.

But you need to be a Super User to change it.

For DevTest versions 9.5.1 and later, it is changed on the Portal in Settings.
