Clear Security Settings

On this page

  • Overview
  • Procedure

Ops Manager enables you to configure the security settings that your deployments use through the Ops Manager user interface. If you wish to reset the security settings for your deployment, you may do so using the Clear Settings button. Clear Settings clears all authentication-related settings so you can start over from a blank configuration.

Clear Settings removes all authentication-related settings, including the authentication mechanisms for the deployment, automation users and roles, and defined users for the Monitoring and Backups.

You cannot reset the security settings for a deployment if your deployment includes any managed processes.

You may only reset the authentication settings if there are no managed processes associated with your deployment. As such, if you wish to reset the security settings, you must unmanage all processes, and then use the Clear Settings button to reset the security settings.
