    Default Get an account's password

    Is it possible to get password of an account from cli? As a global admin in zcs.

    I understand its hashed in db. Besides getting into an account's inbox through delegated admin access, as an admin I would like to know if the password itself can be recovered for an account from backend. Perhaps from db.

    no it's fine answered. you can't. they're only stored in the LDAP directory hashed. so the only way you could even try to get them would be to run zimbra in http only, and packet sniff user logins
