Applies to:

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


Requirement to configure EBS where user should not be able to reuse their last 3 passwords when they change their current password.

I.e, suppose the password for user was:-
Password1 on January1
Password changed to Practise2 on February1
Password changed to Greater3 on March1

If the 'Signon Password No Reuse' profile is set to value of 180 days; and if user tries to change the password in April, does the system accept any of the last 3 passwords or does it prevent reuse of only last password.

If it prevents only the last known password (i.e, Greater3), then how to configure so that the past 3 passwords are also prevented(Greater3, Practise2 and Password1).
