A fix is available
Closed as program error.
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.
Random passwords generated do not comply with minimum password standards
Fixed in version 1.4 of the Enterprise profile package.
