Change OpenStack User password via CLI

If you need to change your password via CLI please follow these steps:

  1. If you forgot your original password or if you need to set a new one (in case you registered using IDEM or google authentication) ask to reset it
  2. Install the CLI libraries on a server (instructions here)
  3. Download your environment file from the OpenStack dashboard to the client server (instructions at this page)

After sourcing the environment issue this command:

openstack user password set

You will be asked to give your original password and provide with a new one.

Don’t forget to source the environment file again to continue using the CLI!
