In our SAP NetWeaver Portal we have defined a new security policy. As a
part of this we have set the "Minimum Number of Alphanumeric Characters
in Password" at 1.
When an end-user defines a new password violating this setting, the
message which is shown is "Ongeldig nieuw password. Password moet
minstens 1 alfanumerieke tekens bevatten." (in the Dutch language,
which translates as "Invalid new password. Password requires at least 1
The phrase "Number of Alphanumeric Characters" is misleading. What is
intended is "Number of letters and number of digits". When a user
defines as his new password "Abcdefghi" the message suggests the
password must contain at least 1 alphanumeric character, while in
reality it contains 8 alphanumeric characters.
Is it possible to change at least this message shown to the end-user?
The message should read something like "Invalid new password. Password
requires at least 1 letters and 1 digits." (in Dutch "Ongeldig nieuw
password. Password moet minstens 1 letters en 1 cijfers bevatten").
