CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


This is the customer context:
We successfully updated our environment to version 12.1 but now we have a question about the password length.
Is it 60 characters? How can we manage that?


CA Automic Workload Automation version 12 and above


The password policies in v12 is managed in the Automation Engine by the variable UC_CLIENT_SETTINGS and its parameter PWD_LENGTH_MAX.
This parameter can be set between 0 and 32. So you can set the max length according to your security needs to the limit of 32 characters. By default, the value is set to 32.
