rhoas service-account reset-credentials#

Reset service account credentials


Reset the credentials for a service account. This command will generate a new password for a service account. After the credentials have been reset, any applications or tools that use the credentials must be updated to use the new password.

You must specify an output format into which the credentials will be stored.

  • env (default): Store credentials in an env file as environment variables
  • json: Store credentials in a JSON file
  • properties: Store credentials in a properties file, which is typically used in Java-related technologies.
