Issue/Introduction



Does CA PPM support and allow entering whitespace characters at the end of the password?

Environment

CA PPM 15.x

Resolution

Even though it is possible to enter whitespace characters at the end of the password, CA PPM is trimming the password.
So, the password stored is the trimmed version of the password being typed.
In the same manner, when the user tries to log in, the password being typed is trimmed.

Hence, from a functional point of view, all these passwords would be the same:

mypassword
mypassword[_]
...
mypassword[_]...[_] 


 

Additional Information

Application limitation and Clarity does trim the space and will not accept space in password (using Clarity LDAP authentication).

Customers may decide to use SSO and will handle the password at their SSO end.
