Can I Configure The Password Generator To Use A Limited Subset of Characters? (Doc ID 2180868.1)

Last updated on JUNE 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Temporary passwords generated by Oracle Cloud Commerce and relayed to customers via email or over the telephone may be considered problematical because they include punctuation marks, e. g.  "/)*&#. Punctuation marks make these temporary passwords harder to relate during telephone interactions. Also, some punctuation marks that are common in American English may not exist  or may not be prominent on the keyboards of users outside of the USA.

A customer asked, "Can we configure the product to generate passwords from a limited character set, e. g. 8 characters using only numbers and letters?"
