  • Remember that the retrieve password only works if an account is associated with the email address.

Create a new admin user instead from command line by using below command

php bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user admin --admin-password Password@1234 --admin-email [email protected] --admin-firstname john --admin-lastname doe

will save lots of your time and you can reset that existing user's password after login.
