Team, I have just installed Jenkins on one of my machine. In between due to some other activity, I moved few min away. When I returned I observed my Jenkins page asking me Username & Password. Note - I have neither created any user & nor set any password

My question is : What should I enter in Username & Password fields for recently installed Jenkins setup?

If you see this

Unlock Jenkins To ensure Jenkins is securely set up by the administrator, a password has been written to the log (not sure where to find it?) and this file on the server:


Please copy the password from either location and paste it below.

or something like this, then you need to get the initialAdminPassword and then login and then set a password. Please see the steps here to do so

Also, sudo passwd jenkins should prompt you to set a password.
