How to reset your Password

Forgot your password? Don't worry, it happens to the best of us.

Luckily, in Lightdash it's a pretty quick fix 🧚

If you're a Lightdash Cloud or Enterprise user

Just head to the login page and click on Forgot your password?


Once you fill out your email and click send reset email, you should get an email from us with instructions on how to reset your password in no time!

If you've deployed Lightdash locally

We recommend adding the SMTP environment variables so Lightdash can display a Forgot your password? button in the login page and send emails to reset password. Basically, the same flow as above.

You can override a user password in just a few steps:

  1. Open the bash terminal for the docker Lightdash container

  2. Override user password with this command:

cd ./packages/backend && node ./dist/overrideUserPassword.js <user email> <new password>
