ssoadminpassword CLI command

Use this command to change the BMC Remedy Single Sign-On administrator (username: amadmin) password in the TrueSight IT Data Analytics records.

The password for default user, amadmin, is used to access details about users, user groups, and realms (or tenants) available in Remedy Single Sign-On. This information is required while creating data collectors in TrueSight IT Data Analytics.

After installing TrueSight IT Data Analytics, if the password corresponding to the admadmin user changes, then it is necessary that you update the same password in the TrueSight IT Data Analytics records.
