Discrepancy Between Password Lengths In Login Pagpe VS Preferences->PASSWD RESET (Doc ID 2502579.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 23, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Application Object Library - Version 12 to 12.1.3 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Oracle Application main login page takes up to a 16 character password. The preferences
password change page allows up to 21 characters.
This would allow someone to change a password to 20 characters but then they
would not be able to login to the main page.

These two password length limits must match so that it is not possible
to set the password longer than the login page will accept.
