It looks like you've got Confluence using JIRA as the user authentication so the message would be right..what would you like for it to do?

I need to change/edit the warning message. Is it possible.

  • Open your Confluence administration
  • Goto Security Configuration
  • Enable External user management

This will remove the Forget password link.

How could i edit the warning message while we try to change the password

If you really want to do this, then follow these docs: https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/cQQD
