After Setting SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON to TRUE, AFPASSWD Fails With Error "Error in password verification for APPS" (Doc ID 2458394.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Application Object Library - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.5 version, Basic SysAdmin functions, maintenance

After setting the value of SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON, AFPASSWD is failing with the following error:

Enter the ORACLE password of Application Object Library 'APPSUSER':
Enter the ORACLE password of Application Object Library 'APPSUSER':
Connected successfully to APPS.
Error in password verification for APPS
AFPASSWD completed with errors.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set database parameter SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON to true
2. Attempt a password change using FNDCPASS and it fails.

After setting the database parameter SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON to true, all of the following occurs:
 - no username/password combination can be used for logon,
 - also the passwords cannot be changed by FNDCPASS/AFPASSWD,
 - and they can logon to EBS Homepage, but cannot open forms, so cannot create users from Users form

If SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON parameter is set to FALSE everything is fine and the users are able to use the application.
