I've successfully installed StreamSets with the Clouder Manager on my CentOS 7 Host. The standard password for user admin is admin. Unfortunately I'm not able to change the admin password or add new users over the Web-GUI.

What I did so far:

  • Stopped StreamSets role with Cloudera Manager
  • Deleted all folder under /run/cloudera-scm-agent/process/*-streamsets-DATACOLLECTOR/
  • Commented out standard users and added new user to file under /opt/cloudera/parcels/STREAMSETS_DATACOLLECTOR/etc/
  • Restarted StreamSets service with Cloudera Manager

After starting the service via Cloudera Manager I can see inside logs that StreamSets uses the same standard users like in the first installation

CONFIGURED_USERS: admin: MD5:21232f297a57a5a743894a0e4a801fc3,user,admin;guest: MD5:084e0343a0486ff05530df6c705c8bb4,user,guest;creator: MD5:ee2433259b0fe399b40e81d2c98a38b6,user,creator;manager: MD5:1d0258c2440a8d19e716292b231e3190,user,manager

Any suggestions how to change the standard user credentials?

I've installed StreamSets now with the *.rpm-File and everything seems to work regarding changing credentials. Maybe there is a bug in the cloudera parcel?

Hello, As I described in my post, I did exactly the same steps. But unfortunately after restarting StreamSets with Cloudera Manager, StreamSets uses the same passwords like after the first installation. Thanks!

I am having the same issue with Cloudera CDH 5.15 and Streamsets 3.6.1.


by changing admin password and commenting out all the other users, but Data Collector Web UI is like first time installation: admin/admin and all users present. I did all the required restarts.

Thank you,
