How do I disable Two Factor Authentication ( 2FA ) for the admin user and others?

For Ezeelogin Version 7 and above


1. To disable  two factor authentication ( 2FA ) for admin user, run the following commands.

root@jumpserver:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ez_queryrunner.php "update prefix_users set egs=NULL,eak=NULL,eyk=NULL,set_duo=0 where id=1" 

You can also disable the duo for admin user  by running the following command : 

root@localhost:~ php /usr/local/ezlogin/ez_queryrunner.php "update prefix_users set set_duo=0 where id=1" 

2. To disable Force Two factor authentication for all users, run the following command.

   To clear Two factor Authentication for all users, run the following command.(All users need to reconfigure two factor authenticator after clearing it)

root@jumpserver:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ez_queryrunner.php "update prefix_users set egs=NULL,eak=NULL,eyk=NULL,set_duo=0"

root@jumpserver:~# php /usr/local/ezlogin/ez_queryrunner.php  " update prefix_usergroups SET force_tfa = 'N' where name = 'usergroup_name'"

Note: Replace the 'usergroup_name' with your user group

   eak         = Access Keyword
   eyk         = Yubikey
   egs       = Google Authenticator
   set_duo = DUO 2FA      



For Ezeelogin Version 6 and below


1. Find database name and database prefix from /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf in ezeelogin gateway server.

root@jumpserver:~# cat /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf

system_folder /var/www/ezlogin/

force_https yes

uri_path /

db_host localhost

db_port /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

db_name ezlogin_por

db_user ezlogin_cxy

db_pass ymhbtPaY)VzD2g]84

db_prefix casmbn_

cookie_encryption_key D8$Frp5fF_FF

cookie_name rlbup

cookie_path /

www_folder /var/www/html/ezlogin/

admin_user ezadmin

mysql_encrypt no

2. Login to mysql command prompt

Replace the "db_user" &  "dn_name" with values in    /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf of your ezeelogin jump server.You can find the db password as "db_pass" in  /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf of your ezeelogin jump server.

root@jumpserver:~# mysql -u  db_user -p  db_name

4. Run the following command to    two factor authentication ( 2FA ) for admin user

Replace " dbprefix_" with the value of dbprefix_ in  /usr/local/etc/ezlogin/ez.conf of your ezeelogin jump server. For example " dbprefix_settings " is to be replaced with " casmbn_settings " here.

UPDATE dbprefix_settings SET value = 0 WHERE name = 'two_factor_auth' ;

UPDATE dbprefix_users SET egs=NULL,eak=NULL,eyk=NULL,set_duo=NULL where id=1;

Run the following command   two factor authentication ( 2FA ) for all users.

UPDATE dbprefix_users SET egs=NULL,eak=NULL,eyk=NULL,set_duo=0;


 you have to use correct db_name and dbprefix from ez.conf if you are running the mysql commands manually.
