Error description

  • Problem
    When you enable your database to use RDS to manage users,
    password expiry options should be handled out side of DOORS. We
    have greyed out the option to use it but it would be preferable
    to remove it and tidy up the documentation.
    
    To Reproduce
    - enable RDS on your database
    - go to db properties ? password tab
    
    Note in the 'password restrictions' panel that there is a greyed
    out option for 'passwords expire after:' as it cannot apply to
    the Administrator.
    
    This should be removed from the software.
    
    The documentation needs tidied up to reflect this. The lines
    
    The Passwords expire after option is only available if you have
    selected
    Use Rational Directory for user information and authentication
    on the General tab.
    
    does not apply anymore.
