Supply ElasticSearch Keystore password to start ElasticSearch Service

I have been building my Elasticsearch cluster and I was playing around with the Elasticsearch keystore.
If I change the Elasticsearch keystore password, the Elasticsearch service does not start anymore.
This makes sense since it is written in the documentation :
"When the keystore is password-protected, you must supply the password each time Elasticsearch starts".

So my question is : How do I supply the password so that the Elasticsearch service can start ?
I've searched quite a bit and I could not find how.

Thank you.

It depends how you are running Elasticsearch, but this is described in the documentation about Starting Elasticsearch.

I got the answer in the Debian section of the article you linked.
Thanks !
