Admin Account Password Reset

What to do when we receive a ticket regarding resetting the password for administrator accounts.

Intended Audience

HD staff tiers 1 & 2


Occasionally we will receive requests to reset passwords for a users -a account.  This can not be done through the password change page on the UWM website.


  • If the account is located in OU then a task would have to be assigned to either Endpoint or Enterprise depending on which sub-ou that they are in.
  • Any request that does not meet the above criteria should be assigned to Alex Hardy so she can review them.
