Hey Rakesh,

What version of Qlik Sense are you running?

Broadly speaking the service account password, in a clean system, are embedded in:

Pre-June 2017:

  • Windows Services Applet

June 2017+

  • Windows Services Applet
  • monitor_apps_* data connections

Other optional places where there are stored password inside of Qlik Sense include:

  • Other data connections
  • User Directory Connectors

Other places where the password can be stored in Windows include, but are not limited to:

  • Windows Vault
  • DSN created in the ODBC panel

In a June 2017+ system, assuming you have Qlik CLI, then this script is useful: https://github.com/levi-turner/QlikSenseScripts/blob/master/qlik_sense_pwd_change.ps1‌ (note there still is a logic bug which I will need to get around to where the QRS can be non-responsive to the API calls; the delay seems to resolve things)
