Disable security by editing these two classes within the config.xml file in the following way:

authorizationStrategy class="hudson.security.AuthorizationStrategy$Unsecured"/>
  <securityRealm class="hudson.security.SecurityRealm$None"/>

This error occurs often, even when the credentials we enter are correct. A quick fix is to reconfigure security options in the config.xml file. The Jenkins config.xml file holds all the information related to the security realm and the authorization strategy. This file is located in the /var/lib/jenkins directory. One thing you must know is that, by disabling the security any anonymous user can access your Jenkins.

By default, the security is enabled and if for some reason you’re not able to login to Jenkins dispite providing valid credentials then you can disable the security and authorization strategy. You can do this by editing the config.xml file and changing the following two classes

  • Security realm
  • Authorization strategy

You can change the password by manually editing the configuration file for your user. (/jenkins/users/username/config.xml) and update the contents of passwordHash:

Weird but uninstalling and reinstalling worked for me! It's a lot of work and not the best thing to do.
