Hi Experts,

We want to change the profile parameter "login/password_downwards_compatibility" value from 1 to 0. The impact of this is system will not create Backward compatible HASH values for passwords. But what impact will it have on existing Users and how to assess this impact??

Any thought or details will be helpful.

Hi Harshad,

AFAIK for users, if their password is not downward compatible, system will prompt for password change window during their first logon after the change.

Hi Prithviraj,

I am making the change to remove the downward compatibility. So if password is not downward compatible, system should not bother to do so.

Also, is there any way / tool to identify which user's password is downward compatible and which is not?

Thanks in Advance !!

Hi Harsahad,

Password: downwardly compatible / downwardly incompatible

A (plain text) password is downwardly compatible if it consists of a maximum of 8 characters and contains no lowercase letters.

A (plain text) password is downwardly incompatible if it consists of more than 8 characters or contains at least one lowercase letter.

Regards,

Prithviraj
