The purpose of this document is to help explain what to do if you receive the following error.

UAA admin password has expired.


This issue is caused if you are using an internal UAA DB and have changed the default password policy to be a number greater than 0, thus causing the password to expire after X amount of time.

Example: Number of Months before Password Expires = 3 


Open the Internal UAA Configuration and change the setting back to the default of 0.
