Reset Cisco ISE WebGUI/CLI Passwords

In Cisco ISE the WebGUI and CLI admin accounts/passwords are separate. In order to change the passwords you can use the following methods:

  • The CLI Admin password can be changed from the CLI by entering the command password. The CLI password is unique to each ISE node


  • The WebGUI password can be changed from the CLI by entering the command application reset-passwd ise admin. The WebGUI password must be reset on the Primary PAN, this password is then synchronised to all ISE nodes.


  • Alternatively you can reset the WebGUI (not CLI) password within the WebGUI itself. Navigate to Administration > System > Admin Access > Administrators > Admin Users


Resetting a forgotten ISE Password

If you have forgotten the ISE CLI password you can only reset this by booting from the ISE DVD/ISO.

  • Select option 3 or 4


  • Select option 1 – Recover Administrator Password


  • Select Admin account and enter the new password
  • Save changes and exit to reboot the ISE node
