Disable security

One may accidentally set up security realm / authorization in such a way that you may no longer able to reconfigure Hudson.

When this happens, you can fix this by the following steps:

  1. Stop Hudson (the easiest way to do this is to kill the servlet container.)
  2. Go to $HUDSON_HOME in the file system and find hudson-security.xml file.
  3. Open this file in the editor.
  4. Look for the <useSecurity>true</useSecurity> element in this file.
  5. Replace true with false
  6. Start Hudson

When Hudson comes back, it's in the unsecured mode where everyone gets full access to the system.
