Error : Authentication failed logon with password not allowed


My administrator is unable to login into the IDM UI . It is throwing error : Authentication failed logon with password not allowed.

It was able to login some time back and also my other users are able to login but not Administrator.

Any thoughts on how to resolve the issue.

Also, please tell how to create new administrator in Idm UI

Hello Shanky,

you go to the user admnistration UI of the AS Java on which the IdM UI is deployed(http://host:port/useradmin) and change the user to enable password logon. BTW: This is not really IdM related unless IdM has disabled the password logon for the user.

To create a new administrator you also go to useradmin of the AS Java and create the user there. Don't forget to give him the necessary authorizations on AS Java as well (e.g. idm.authenticated).

You can also make use of IdM to do that
