This article provides an overview of the default user IDs and passwords being used for Junos Space

Problem or Goal:
There are three username and password pairs that can be used with Junos Space.


The three different user IDs are as follows:

  • admin user for CLI login  (default password: abc123)

  • super user for WebUI (default password: juniper123)

  • Maintenance user for maintenance operations. The password is set by the admin user during the initial configuration (that is, there is no default password).


  • Change or modify - the default password (abc123) is used during the initial configuration, after installation. The initial configuration prompts the user to change the default password. Later on, this password can still be changed by using the Junos Space CLI menu settings, as shown below:
