Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) 7.3, you have password restrictions in the System Configuration > Configuration screen.  "Password Restriction" is set to "Restricted" and "Password Length" is 6 MIN and 20 MAX.  However, OFSAA users can still change their passwords to a value that is only 5 characters long.  They are not forced to enter a password of at least 6 characters.  Password restriction enforcement is not working.

Steps to Reproduce:
  1. Go to System Configuration > Configuration
  2. Set Password Restriction to Restricted
  3. Set Password Length to 6 MIN and 20 MAX
  4. Save
  5. Click the Change Password length
  6. Enter a password that is 5 characters
The password is changed to the new value successfully when it should get an error.
