Force password reset

As an N-sight RMM Dashboard administrator, you can force users to reset their password the next time they login or immediately. For example, you may have a security situation that requires immediate password changes, or you may be manually enforcing a password expiration policy.

Users can edit their own accounts to Edit your user details, email and password.

To force one or more users to reset their passwords:

  1. Log into the N-sight RMM Dashboard using an account with Users permissions enabled (for example SuperUser)
  2. Go to Settings > Users > User Accounts
  3. Select the target user(s). To select multiple users, use Shift and left-click to choose a range of users or Control and left-click for specific users.
  4. Click User

  5. Choose the required type of reset:

    If required, you can cancel a password reset request using Password Reset > Cancel Password Reset.
