Account management can be done from the CLI by using
jitsu users. The
following commands are at your disposal to change account details.
Who Am I?
To check the current authenticated account name, do
jitsu users whoami. The
response should read as below where username is the current logged in
info: You are: [username]
Is a new account name available?
Account name availability for a new account can be checked with
available [username] where username is the name of your choice. The feedback
should contain either:
info: Username [username] is not available // or info: Username [username] is available
Change your password
If you would like to change your current password, make sure you are logged in
with the right user. Changing your password can be done by calling
jitsu users changepassword. You will be prompted to enter a new password first
and to confirm it after, like so:
info: Welcome to Nodejitsu [username] info: jitsu v0.12.8, node v0.8.22 info: It worked if it ends with Nodejitsu ok info: Executing command users changepassword prompt: password: prompt: confirm password:
Lost your password?
Losing your password is cumbersome, but we provide easy recovery through
jitsu users forgot [username]. Where username is your account name for which
you would like to recover the password. You should receive an e-mail on e-mail
address known to Nodejitsu. The e-mail will provide instructions to complete
recovery. To reset your password run the following jitsu command:
jitsu users forgot [username] [handshake]
This command can be copy-pasted from the e-mail. The handshake is the unique identifier temporarily bound to your account to reset your password. After entering above command you will be prompted to enter your new password.
Login, logout and signup can both be done shorthand and through
