Outgoing email content Confluence

Currently when I click into forgot password link 


an email is sent via email with below content. I need to change the content of the same but somehow its not working for me. 



You (or someone else) has requested to reset your password.

This password reset request is valid for the next 24 hours. Don't worry you can always ask for a new password using the following link https://URL/forgotuserpassword.action

Reset password


I have already tried editing ConfluenceActionSupport.properties:email.notification.change.password.request.link.description but it doesn't seems to work.


Thanks in advance.
