Reset lost keystore password

Hi support,

Is there any way to recover a keystore password/alias? I didn’t realise the CLI prints these details in the terminal when saving the .jks file - and subsequently didn’t save them (and since, have mistakenly cleared credentials trying to troubleshoot). This was using Expo to generate new credentials and ‘expo fetch:android:keystore’.

I have the correct .jks keystore file, however am not sure how to upload it back to your build servers so that it can be used.

Thank you.

Expo CLI 3.22.3 environment info:
OS: Windows 10 10.0.19041
Node: 12.16.0 - C:\Program Files\nodejs\node.EXE
npm: 6.13.4 - C:\Program Files\nodejs\npm.CMD
Android Studio: Version AI-192.7142.36.36.6241897
expo: ^38.0.0 => 38.0.8
react: 16.11.0 => 16.11.0
react-dom: 16.11.0 => 16.11.0
react-native: => 0.62.2
react-native-web: ~0.11.7 => 0.11.7

no there is no way to recover that password, you need to ask play store support to reset your keystore,

you will need to generate new keystore (e.g w build:android -c command) and send them public key (pem file) for new keystore that can be generated using expo fetch:android:uplad-cert
