Issue/Introduction

If a Promptset Object is created containing two password fields, the value of the second password is going to be destroyed when saving the Promptset Object. 
This results in wrong password messages as soon as the password is used either on OS side or other password requiring programmes which inherit their password from this promptset

Cause

This is caused by a bug in the Application Web Interface (AWI)

Environment

Application Web Interface 12.2 Windows and UNIX

Resolution

The bug is found and will be fixed in a soon to be released hotfix.
The fix will also be part of upcoming Servicepacks and minor/major releases.
