<ILLEGAL CHARACTERS FOUND IN THE POST DATA for special param. Param=password, Value=Her7man&>
|Resolution||The resolution is to change the password and use a value with acceptable characters.|
Please run the below query. It will reset the password for role admin and the new password will be "admin"
UPDATE USERS SET COUNT_TRIES = 0, LOCKED_AT_DATE = NULL, LOCKED_BY = NULL, SALT_VALUE = NULL, PASSWORD = 'D033E22AE348AEB5660FC2140AEC35850C4DA997' WHERE (NAME = 'admin');
After that you can log into accessmanagement portal and reset the password for admin as per your choice.
