Generating HCL Commerce encrypted passwords

You can generate encrypted passwords in order to manually reset the password of a user from a command line. There are other tools (such as the ResetPassword command) that accomplish the same task. To manually reset the password, the administrator would take the encrypted password that is output by the utilities and update the LOGONPASSWORD field of the USERREG table. The administrator would also update the SALT field of the USERREG table with the chosen salt.


Generate an encrypted password by running the wcs_password utility.
