This article provides the possible solutions for the Commerce Admin login issue, where you are redirected back to the login form with the following error message: “Your account is temporarily disabled”. The suggested solution is checking and correcting the admin user database settings.

Affected editions and versions:

All Adobe Commerce versions and editions


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to the Commerce Admin page.
  2. Enter your credentials and click Sign in.

Expected result:

You get logged in to the Commerce Admin.

Actual result:

You are redirected back to the login form, with the following error message displayed: “Your account is temporarily disabled. Please try again later”.


  1. Create a database backup.
  2. Use a database tool such as phpMyAdmin, or access the DB manually from the command line. In the admin_user database table, for your admin user record, check if is_active is set to “1” and lock_expires is NULL. Reset these values, if required.
