Changing default user account passwords

When you install Sterling B2B Integrator, several default user accounts are automatically created to get you started. One of the first actions you must take after installation is to update these accounts with unique passwords, because the default ones can be known by all Sterling B2B Integrator customers.

About this task

Default user account passwords are preset at installation. For security purposes, the system administrator should update all default user account passwords immediately after installation is completed.

Default user accounts are listed below in the same order as they appear in the UI under Accounts > User Accounts > List All. You can use this table to track the user accounts you want to update.

Procedure

To change the password for a user account, complete the following steps.
