Forcing Password Resets


Here’s a quick tip for Perforce administrators. In the 2012.2 release, now out in beta, you can force a single user or all users to reset their passwords the next time they run a Perforce operation. Just run:

p4 admin resetpassword

If you like to enforce frequent password changes, just run this command once every few weeks. Or if it’s April Fools Day, run it every 5 minutes.
