Reset OTP (two factor auth)
You may need to reset the two factor authentication in rare cases such as:
- When https://pro.caprover.com is down and you cannot access your instance
- When you have lost access to the authenticator app
In these cases, all you need to do is to simply clear the pro configs and temporarily downgrade your server to a non-paid version. You can do that by removing the
pro content in
The following helper script will do exactly that:
docker service scale captain-captain=0 && \
docker run -it --rm -v /captain:/captain caprover/caprover /bin/sh -c "wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/caprover/caprover/master/dev-scripts/clear-pro-config.js ; node clear-pro-config.js ;" && \
docker service scale captain-captain=1 && \
Starting v1.12.0, you can run the following script:
docker exec -it $(docker ps --filter name=captain-captain -q) npm run disable-otp
Deploy with OTP enabled
When you have OTP enabled, you cannot deploy using regular
caprover deploy as it requires 2FA token (
enter OTP token as well). Instead, you should use App Tokens:
caprover deploy --caproverUrl https://captain.domain.com --appToken 123456123456123456 --appName my-app -b main
You can enable App Token from Deployment tab. Alternatively, you can use the following format (not recommended):
CAPROVER_OTP_TOKEN=123456; caprover login
CAPROVER_OTP_TOKEN=123456; caprover deploy
Set specific email address for the alerts
Changing notification emails is not currently a built in feature. However, one of the many reasons that Google was chosen to be our auth provider is that on Gmail you can easily set up filters and forward specific emails to a different email address.
Just search for
from: firstname.lastname@example.org and create a filter, then forward your results to another email address.
