Is there a way to reset the igntion gateway password?

Hey Everyone,
I got locked out of my ignition gateway because i forgot to give administrator access to the only user in the gateway, I have created the gateway using docker desktop? Is there anyway that I can reset the password?

Searching for "reset password" on the docs site would have given you Reset the password.

If this Ignition Gateway is started of a Docker Container, does the gwcmd reset method work?

Yes, but only within the container. I haven't been using docket, so I don't recall the subcommand, but there is one to open a shell inside your container.

Yes, you should be able to it in one shot with:

docker exec <container name> bash -c "./ -p && ./ -r"

... to perform the password reset and issue a restart from inside the container.
