Error: The New Password cannot Start with a Number. Please Select a Different Password.

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management - Version 1.9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a password has expired and the user attempts to change it via SIA by using a number as the first character of the password, the following error is


The new password cannot start with a number.  Please select a different password.


However, the system allows users to use a number as the first character of the password when changing their password via  the Change Password view in the User Profile module.  The User is able to log onto the application with this new password. There should be consistency  between SIA and Forms in the allowance of using a number as the first character of the password.
