Change the password for Splunk UBA services

To help satisfy any auditing or hardening requirements in your environment, passwords can be configured for internal Splunk UBA services to enhance the security of your system:

  • Use the following command to configure or change a password for Redis connections.
    /opt/caspida/bin/postinstall/redis-connection-passwd.py
  • Use the following password to configure or change a password for any individual service or all services.
    /opt/caspida/bin/postinstall/service-account-passwd.py

Use the --help option in the CLI to view information about the command options.

Use any combination of the following characters in your passwords:

  • Letters a-z or A-Z
  • Numbers 0-9
  • Exclamation point (!)
  • Ampersand (&)
  • Pound sign (#)
  • Dollar sign ($)
  • Caret (^)
  • Less than (<) or greater than (>)
  • Hyphen (-)

Splunk UBA does not enforce additional requirements about the constitution of the passwords beyond what is required by the individual components.
