  1. Hello Rishi,
    Thank you for this post. I think this is only post talking about changing the Atlas pasword.
    I followed the above procedure, but the atlas UI is not able to login with the new password ? Do we need to update any other setting or something missing ? thanks for help. Vishal.

    1. Greetings,

      Could you please help us with the changes you made in the users-credentials.properties ?

      Also, did you restart after changing the password.

      Regards,
