  • Knox Manage (KM)


This knowledge base article provides information on how IT admins can set the passwords for new admin users. There are instances where it can be important to have more than one admin user for Knox Manage, and ensuring they have the proper permissions to operate the console. Knox Manage offers the ability to add new admin users and assign them different types of permissions.

How do I set a new Knox Manage admin user password?

  1. Within the Knox Manage menu, go to Setting > Administrator > Add.
  2. After the new admin user has been created, you can select the Change Password option, in order to assign a temporary secure password that can be changed upon first login to the KM console. This can be achieved by selecting the option Reset After Sign-in.
  3. When the new admin user signs in to the Knox Manage console for the first time, they will be prompted to change the assigned password.
  4. Another option would be having the IT admin assign a definitive secure password to the new admin user so that it won’t be necessary to select the “Reset After sign-in” option.
