Issue/Introduction



Our security office is about to enforce a 15 character password.  Does IDMS support 15 character passwords?

Environment

Release : 19.0

Component : CA ADS

Resolution

There is support for passphrases for use with external security managers. These can be up to 100 characters. Internal security supports 8.

Passphrase support was added by PTF SO04635 and some SMP/E problems with the PTF were corrected by PTF SO05694, published in 2018.

Both PTFs were included in the S1912 Install package released March 2020
