APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In every access profile we have configured the passwords to be
    generated with
    Minimum 8 characters, Maximum 8 Characters, 4 alpha and 4
    numeric.
    This means we expect 8 characters to be generated each time.
    
    Intermittently however for 3 of our Applications, the Access
    Agent is
    only generating 6 character passwords.
    One of them is the out of the box profile for SAP, where 6
    character
    passwords get generated and filled into the New Password and
    Confirm
    Password fields instead of 8.
    .
    Business impact ( BusImpact )
    When user passwords expire or need to be changed as a One Time
    Password, when prompted for a change and the access agent puts
    in less
    characters than the minimum causing the applications to not
    accept the
    new password. This is impacting usability.
