How do I change the language setting of the guest user

Hi all,

as the german translation in OpsView is sometimes a bit dodgy, I would like to set the language setting of the guest user to english, regardless the browser setting. But if I try so, I have to set a password to close the dialogue and I am afraid of breaking the guest account if I do so.

Any hints?

Jeurgen,

Jeurgen,

You can use the UI to set a password on the guest account - this password is not checked in the UI for when the guest user account is used.

However, setting a password on the guest account will then allow the REST API to be used as this user, if the password is known.

I am raising this as a bug for Engineering to investigate - you shouldn't have to set a password if you are changing other options for the user (as it used to be in 4.6), so thanks for raising it.
