Going out of my mind trying to figure out how to get access to an ungraded N8N to user management
Docker is running latest image
docker pull n8nio/n8n
The docker container isnt sending emails via our sendgrid smtp for some reason, not received by sendgrid and the attempt to reset the password via the sqlite database using sqlitebrowser failed.
SMTP is configured as per other instances we run via smtp.sendgrid.net - 465 port is open but is not receiving emails
Attempted the docker management reset
docker exec -it n8n user-management:reset
→ Successfully reset the database to default user state.
Gives me the login screen
lastly I attempted to perform a db password reset on the user in the system, which isnt recognised from the frontend. Unsure how encryption works on n8n as I saw an encryption key in the folder, not sure if that is referenced for the database or if the password via the thread below works as expected (didnt for me)
I’ve tried reproducing your problem on [email protected] started with docker run -it --rm --name n8n -v ./n8n_user_management_test:/home/node/.n8n -p 5678:5678 n8nio/n8n:0.206.0, but this worked as expected. After setting up user management, I am seeing this login screen:
Lastly, I stopped and restarted the n8n container by pressing Ctrl-C (to stop it) and running docker run -it --rm --name n8n -v ./n8n_user_management_test:/home/node/.n8n -p 5678:5678 n8nio/n8n:0.206.0 once again.
Now when force-reloading the n8n page in my browser I can set up a new owner account as expected:
