Hello @Hariharasuthan , 
In ThingWorx, the password is stored after being processed by a hash algorithm. The algorithm is a one direction conversation. There is no method to get the original value restored. If your goal is to get the original password value it is not available.

Hi @Hariharasuthan 

 

I don't think retrieving another user's password through the service is possible. 

 

But if you want to change the password if the user forgets it. You can use the below code

 

 

var params = {
    newPasswordConfirm: "newPassword"/* STRING */,
    newPassword: "newPassword"/* STRING */
};
 
// no return
Users[<<USERNAME>>].AssignNewPassword(params);

 

 

Refer to this article - Article - CS286225 - Create a Mashup for a login user to change the password in ThingWorx (ptc.com)

Hello,

 

If you are looking for a way for the user to reset their password, perhaps this is a good place to start.

The post is quite old, so I am not sure if it works anymore but I thought it could be worth posting it.
