In some instances, it may be necessary to reset all user passwords, forcing users to create new passwords the next time they attempt to log in. For example, you may decide to reset all user passwords if you change a password policy and would like the policy to be immediately enforced. It may also be necessary to reset all user passwords if a breach in system security is discovered or suspected.


When performing a global password reset, the password for any user accounts configured to run OnBase as a Windows service must be changed manually.

To reset all user passwords, you must use the -ROMANZO switch.


Before using features enabled by the -ROMANZO switch, ensure that you understand the feature and implications of any changes to your system. Contact your service provider with any questions regarding these features. Features enabled by the -ROMANZO switch should not be made available to the casual user. Remove the -ROMANZO switch after completing necessary actions.

To reset all user passwords:

  1. Ensure the -ROMANZO switch is enabled.
  2. Select Users | Password Policies.

    The Password Policies dialog box is displayed.

  3. Click the Global Password Reset button.

    You are prompted to confirm that you want to force all users to change their passwords upon their next login.


    This action does not affect the MANAGER or ADMINISTRATOR user accounts.

  4. Click Yes to reset all user passwords.
    Click No to cancel the action.

Upon logging in to OnBase, users are notified they must change their passwords.
