I have had the same installation of Umbraco since dec 2019 and I've always been able to login. But today when i tried to login it said "Login failed for user email@example.com", even tho I have saved the password in Chrome.
But anyhow I thought I might be stupid and then I followed this forum topic: https://our.umbraco.com/forum/using-umbraco-and-getting-started/88494-forgotten-password-in-backoffice-umbraco#comment-305633 and reset my password to the one given in the forumthread. But still it gives med Login failed.
The console gives me the following error:
https://website.com/umbraco/backoffice/UmbracoApi/Authentication/PostLogin 400 (Bad Request) DependencyHandler.axd
I have tried diffrent browsers just incase I had some broken cache, but the error remains.
Im running out of ideas and Google isnt giving me any more good advice :( Anyone know what could be the issue? And why it happened all of the sudden?
Found this after a while: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/reference/security/reset-admin-password .
Turns out, I have had three failed attempts in the past eight months.. and it doesn't reset the amount of times failed when you login successfully. (Which I also do find interesting since thats how it works with your credit card :p)
But a tip for the Umbraco developers, instead of returning a 400 error just give some kind of information, like for this instance, "You have been locked out got to this documentation site to read about it".. Rather then a bad request which more seem like a malfunction of some sort.
is working on a reply...
