What is the minimum password length required by the ORA12C_VERIFY_FUNCTION in Oracle 12.2?
1. The 12.2 document states:
* (version E48135-19, dated June 2017)
Also, the 18c (doc version E83683-15, dated May 2020) and 19c (doc version E96299-10, dated May 2020) shows the same as 12.2 which is "3 characters"
So is it a minimum length of 3 characters (as per the 12.2 manual) or 8 characters and unchanged (as per 12.1 and prior manuals)?
