Security settings in AEM do not take effect

Cause: Configured Security settings in AEM incorrectly.

Solution: The following settings in AEM enable application security so that only assigned users can open the application. Users need to input user name and password when logging into the application.

Step 1 - Go to AEM > Server > Server Security > User Management and add User Name and Password.

Step 2 - Go to AEM > Server > Server Security > Group Management and add Group and then assign users to the group.

Step 3 - Go to AEM > Application > Client Security > User Authentication and click your application. Select "Security On" in User authentication.

Note: Make sure your settings are configured efficiently and clear the history in Internet Explorer before opening the application. Restart the application server and client machine if necessary.
