Password Script


Administrative scripts, like the checkpoint script, interact with the service manager via a REST API. To prevent applications from inadvertently accessing this REST API, it is protected by a password. The password script is used to set service manager's password.

Run this script when initially installing and configuring Appian. This script sets the password for the service manager instance on the server on which it was run. It should be run on all servers that are configured to have an Appian engine or Internal Messaging Service (Kafka and Zookeeper).


<APPIAN_HOME>/services/bin/ (.bat)


Short Name Long Name Required Meaning
-h --help No Show usage information
-p --password Yes New Password


All Appian services, including the service manager, must be shut down before running this script.
