      Description

      Our company security requires us to automate updating passwords. I need to update the password used to log into the Jenkins console, which is configured with Active Directory security. I have tried updating just the config.xml file with the new password on line <bindPassword>newpassword</bindPassword>
      You are unable to login. I have tried updating the password, then restarting the service, which login also fails. Is there a way to do this? I see the password does get encrypted. Is there some other file that also would need updated?
      Any help, suggestions would be appreciated.
