Error description

  • The "Password rules" section of the DOORS documentation says " A
    user with the Create user power can specify a new password that
    is shorter than the minimum password length." However, if you
    define the user's minimum password length to be shorter than
    what is set in the database settings and try to set a password
    that meets this new user defined rule, you will get an error
    that says "The new password is too short: password must be at
    least N character(s) in length." So you can't actually define a
    user password to be shorter than the minimum password length of
    the database as the documentation describes.
