Howtos » Resetting a password

So you forgot a password? There are two ways to fix this.

Login page

Bolt supports password resets from the login page. Just click I forgot my password ... and follow the instructions. The user will receive an e-mail with a new password. Note that this is a shadow password, the current active password will stay active until the shadow password is used. This means you can't just reset a random user's password without his or her interaction.


Bolt also supports password resets from the command line utility Nut. Use user:reset-password and provide the username or e-mail address of the user. Bolt will immediately set a new random password and print it to you. Unlike with the login page, no e-mail is sent and a shadow password is not used.
