  • Help the Palo noooob!!! Changing security for users

    Hi everyone,

    Hoping someone can help....this is one of those "hey I got a Palo server/excel sheets dumped in my lap" posts. ZERO DOCUMENTATION. And i have no previous experience with Palo admin (I've fixed a few formula problems, and re-arranged the way some elements roll up.)

    I've been asked to solve the problem where users can't enter 0.00 into cells. I researched that and it's a permissioning issue. Users need the DELETE right. But here's where it gets interesting, I also don't have the DELETE right. There is no documented Palo Admin password. I have full access to the Palo server (windows), but i can't log in to the web interface localhost:8081 as I don't know the admin pw. If i look at the file sin jedox/Palo Suite/httpd/app/etc i can view the shared secret but the Palo user and password are both defined as '_internal_suite'. And to top things off, while the PASTE ELEMENT feature seems to work, PASTE VIEW is not working for me, which i think is how you are supposed to view permissions anyways.

    So, anyone have any advice on how to get the credentials? or change the permissions?
