How can I restore Arcadia access to my user if I've forgotten my password?

If you’ve forgotten your password and you’re using local accounts with Arcadia, there’s a way to manually update / reset a user’s password using the Arcviz shell:

CDH installations:

cd /opt/cloudera/parcels/ARCADIAENTERPRISE/lib/arcviz
sudo su arcadia
./arcviz changepassword <username>

HDP installations:

cd /opt/arcadia/lib/arcviz 
sudo su arcadia
./arcviz changepassword <username>

MapR installations:

cd /opt/arcadia/lib/arcviz
export PYTHONPATH=/var/lib/arcadia/:/opt/arcadia/lib/arcviz/arcweb
export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=settings_mapr
source ../venv/bin/activate
./arcviz changepassword <username>

When prompted, enter your new password, and then enter the same password once again.
