The EXPIRY_DATE column in the dba_users view same as CREATED date column for expired accounts (Doc ID 1438140.1)

Last updated on MARCH 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 10.2 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The expiry_date column in the dba_users view gets reset to the value in column CREATED if the password for an account is left unchanged after password has expired.

If the password is reset, the expiry_date is correctly calculated

The behavior can be reproduced as follows :

1. Create user and wait till the password expires. Check the expiry_date and created columns to verify that these columns reflect correct values.

2. Try to connect as this user. You will be prompted for a new password.
Do not change the password. Cancel and exit.

3. Check the dba_users view. The expiry date will be reset to created date.
