Hello,

 

Has anyone changed the Admin password via API?  I was able to change a user password with this:

 

https://192.168.1.1/api/3.3/auth_users/update?id=1&password=NewPass123

 

However, this did not seem to work for Admin despite be authenticated as "Admin".

 

Thanks.

We discovered an issue with the ability to update the admin password through the API and are targeting a fix for the next release.

I had been using a '#' in the password.  It seemed to work when I excluded it.

 

The example should work:

https://192.168.1.1/api/3.3/auth_users/update?id=1&password=NewPass123

 

vs.

https://192.168.1.1/api/3.3/auth_users/update?id=1&password=NewPass#123

If you use %23 instead of the pound sign it should work
