    PRGN_CUST table has a heap of parameters for length, uppercase, lowercase and special characters

    Set them there - it used for the generate password (magic wand button) in su01. I suspect you will need to perform in each system as well as GRC system.

    Get to table via sm30 for PRGN_CUST for following parameters


    Values between login/min_password_specials and 40 (default) - max.number of special characters in generated password (s.Note 662466)


    Values between login/min_password_letters and 40 (default) - max. number of letters in generated password (see Note 662466)


    Values between login/min_password_lng - 40 (default)- max. password length of generated password (see Note 915488)


    Values between login/min_password_digits and 40 (default) - max. number of digits in generic password (see Note 662466)

    You will need to set these values but also consider what your RZ10 system parameters are for password strengths

    If this fails, refer to Note 1666807 - GRC 10.0 PSS : new password ignores PRGN_CUST restriction

    • Hi Colleen, hope you're doing great!

      I just found this comment of yours and was wondering if (as you mention) it's only for the generated password (through the magic wand button).

      I configured the PSS and it's working but I have a problem with the length of the automatic temporary password that's being sent via notification. As it's 40chars long and I need to cut it to 20.
      I've tried PRGN_CUST with the parameters you mention and had no luck...

      Hope you read this, thank you!!!
