SOLVED Safe to replace admin user?


  • I deleted the default admin user after promoting my own user to admin, but I remember seeing a setting for LDAP with the default admin user that I can’t see with my own user. Did I screw up?


  • @yusf Hmm that depends if "admin" group level from LDAP (from cloudron) gets passed to Grafana users (I don't know for this app), are you an admin with your user now?

    I can login just fine with my user but I kept the admin user with a strong password.

    worst case, just reinstall 🙂

    It's not propagated. We have since fixed most of our packages to not have this propagation since it was causing confusion because of the varied support across packages.

    @yusf It's best to keep the original admin user (this applies to all packages and not just grafana). While it's one more user to remember, hopefully you can set the admin a random password and never have to login again after giving your Cloudron user admin previliges.

    Duly noted. 😅

    Yeah, oddly enough I found the LDAP setting in my new admin user as well now, so the whole thing might've been a brainfart on my part.
