Reset Ansible AWX Tower admin password

While working on one of the project I came accross a Ansible AWX server where 'admin' password as missing, and I wanted to reset forgotten awx password, the steps given here will also work on RedHat Ansible Tower. In my case AWX is containerised and installed on docker, and I will run highlighted command to reset admin password. It will ask for password twice to confirm and in the end successfully changes password. I can test the admin username and password on browser now.

docker ps
docker exec -it awx_web bash
awx-manage changepassword admin

ansible awx tower ubuntu redhat centos linux docker ps containers images docker exec -it awx_web bash awx-manage changepassword admin changed successfully for user amdin.png
