Issue/Introduction

We are looking into using the Password Dictionary option within Identity Manager to limit certain passwords from being chosen. When a user does pick a password that is in the dictionary, an error displays of: "Error: Password must not match dictionary entry." Can this error be customized, can we change the wording somewhere?

Error:   Password must not match dictionary entry.



Environment

Release : 14.X

Component : Identity Manager

Resolution

Yes, the "Password must not match dictionary entry" can be modified.
