Reset Jamf cli tools configuration pwd?

Valued Contributor

I don't use the cli tools often, and when trying to check something today, I'm being prompted for the configuration password but none of my documented passwords are being accepted.

Is there a quick and simple way to delete the cli configuration and set a new password? I believe the only thing I had set was a scheduled backup, which appears to have not been running correctly, so attempting to get in there to check it but unable to do so at the moment.

$ jamf-pro config encrypt forgot-password

Is what you are looking for.
This can happen on older versions of the CLI tools incorrectly calculating the key if none where set. You may want to also try upgrading to the latest using the package managers as described in Using the Jamf Pro Server Tools Command-Line Interface

Just wanted to say a belated "thank you" @brandon.roehl . Finally got some time to get back to it, and worked like a charm.
