Reset passwords

Last Updated: May 13, 2019

If you forget the password of your DLA account, you can reset the password in the DLA console or by calling UpdateAccountPassword.

Note: For your data security, we recommend that you change your password periodically.

Reset the password of an account in the DLA console

  1. Log on to the Data Lake Analytics console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Account. On the Account page that appears, locate the row that contains the target account, and click Reset Password in the Actions column.

  3. In the Reset Password dialog box that appears, set a new password for the account.

    DLA allows you to set a password in either of the following ways:

    • Random password: Use the password that is generated by the DLA system. Select Use System-generated password and click OK. The system then automatically generates a password.

    • Password: Set a password manually. Enter a password and click OK.

  4. In Phone Number Verification dialog box that appears, enter the verification code, and then click OK.

    You can click Change Phone Number to bind the account to another mobile phone number as prompted.

Description

When you reset the password of the root account, DLA sends an internal message to notify you of the password change. If you forget the password of the root account, you can retrieve the password from the internal message.

  1. Log on to the Data Lake Analytics console. In the top navigation bar, choose Message > More.

  2. On the Internal Messages page, find and click the message that is titled Notification on password reset for your Data Lake Analytics service account to view your DLA account and password.
