Reset API password v.24

How can I reset API password in v24 for service account when we have SSO enabled for service account, and it is not tied to AD account? 

I'd appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you!

Hi @Alin ,

  1. Add this feature access to sav role for user you want to reset the password. (Login and reset)


  2. You can also reset the password of this user - using admin function -> reset password
    • Post this is done - user's attribute localAuthEnabled should be set to true
    • and passwordExpired should be set to false

#1 It can't be implemented because local authentication works only from Saviynt VPN

#2 Can be achievable 

  • Login with SSO with admin access 
  • Create new API user
  • Set password from Admin functions
  • from Admin - webservice Admin Config --> Generate token 
  • copy access token




  • Open postman hit  update user api to set below flags
