CHANGE PASSWORD ALLOWS ILLEGAL CHARACTERS (%,&,+) BUT THEN ERRORS WHEN ACCESSING FORMS
Last updated on OCTOBER 16, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The Change Password view in User Profile allows a user (or Administrator) to enter in illegal characters into the new password (including & and % and +). The new (bad) password is accepted.
However, in subsequent log-ins by that user with the new password:
1. the user can successfully log into the WAM Home page; but
2. the user cannot open any WAM module. Instead, the user's presented with a series of error dialogs:
FRM-40815: Variable GLOBAL.RULES_LIST does not exist
ORA-12560:TNS:protocol adapter error
Error: Cannot find SAPI Library
Then you receive a Logon dialog box
