Are you changing the password on the homescreen, before logged in into AEM? Do you see any logging in error.log file for this time?

Hi @Niveshchandra,

Could you please elaborate on the change password functionality.

Is it a custom component that you have developed?

If yes, backend mechanism for handling the same.

When you say homepage, this is AEM Admin page?

 

Or is the homepage part of the site you built on AEM?

 

In any case, for such errors, you need to troubleshoot, starting with the logs.

Hi @Niveshchandra,

Given that you are getting success message and no errors in log file, Could you please close all working browser window and try to login to the instance(with updated password) in Incognito.

Ignore if you have already tried it.

I have faced this issue in 6.2 when the password was not matching the password policies. Please try with a simple password adhering to to the standards, some special character may be the culprit. You can verify it by logging in into AEM with a different user and then trying to change via user administration console.

 

If you can't login with any user, then its a problem with the AEM instance and you need to check the logs to understand what has gone wrong.

Please check “Apache Jackrabbit
Oak Authorizable ActionProvider” OSGi Config from Felix console to check the password policy.
