Overview

This article provides instructions on how a Druva Cloud administrator and an inSync Cloud administrator can reset the account password for a user. 

When an administrator resets the password, inSync sends an email with a password reset link to the user.

Note: The password reset link is valid only for 24 hours.

Procedure

  1. On the inSync Management Console, click Users.
  2. Select the user whose password you want to reset.
  3. Click More > Reset Password. The Reset Password window appears.

  5. Click Reset Password. inSync sends an email with a link to reset the new password to the inSync user.

This link is valid for 24 hours. If the password reset link expires before the password is reset, the inSync administrator can resend the invitation email.
