Resolution

Solution: 

;;default is yes
WebUI.EndevorPasswordUppercased=Yes

By default, CMEW has the above setting in ew.cfg - meaning CMEW password will be upper cased. 

Go to CMEW server and change WebUI.EndevorPasswordUppercased option by: 

stop Tomcat 
run CMEW define datasource and deployment tool 
uncheck WebUI.EndevorPasswordUppercased under general options 
click next all the way 
click apply 
click deploy 

Restart Tomcat 


CMEW now accept the mixed case password.
