E-SEC/E-PC: Copy User profile not working because HashWithSalt function does not return a result (Doc ID 2018697.1)

Last updated on JUNE 09, 2015

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.54 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


Copy User Profiles functionality not correctly working because HashWithSalt PeopleCode is not functioning in PeopleTools 8.54.09.
The function does not return any errors, but does not encode the password. This results in the newly created user to have a blank password, instead of the one chosen when cloning the user.


The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Log into PIA.
2. Navigate to PeopleTools -> Security -> User profiles -> Copy user profile.
3. Copy an existing user profile. Notice that the password is left blank.
4. Try to log with the newly created user - authentication fails.
