 Description   
The AGG_SERVICE_ACCOUNT user defaults to a well known password and can be used to login to the webclient. After changing the password in the admin client, queries will throw errors with the following:

10:16:37,317 ERROR [edu.harvard.i2b2.pm.delegate.ServicesHandler] (Thread-114) Username or password does not exist
10:16:37,318 ERROR [stderr] (Thread-114) java.lang.Exception: Username or password does not exist
10:16:37,319 ERROR [stderr] (Thread-114) at edu.harvard.i2b2.pm.delegate.ServicesHandler.execute(Unknown Source)

10:16:37,319 ERROR [stderr] (Thread-114) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:744)
10:16:37,321 ERROR [edu.harvard.i2b2.pm.ws.PMResponseMessage] (http--0.0.0.0-9090-4) Error reported by Ont web Service Username or password does not exist

Queries no longer function as well. How do we change the password to be more secure?

As a note and may address this issue, if you change the AGG_SERVICE_ACCOUNT password via the admin interface, you must also update the password that is hard-coded into the config files and redeploy Jboss:

edu.harvard.i2b2.ontology\etc\spring\ontology.properties
edu.harvard.i2b2.crc\etc\spring\crc.properties

Updated issue type to documentation. The install documentation will be updated on the process of changing the AGG_SERVICE_ACCOUNT password.
