CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)

Issue/Introduction

We plan to increase PAM (PRIVILEGED ACCESS MANAGEMENT) Password minimum length in Global Settings (Settings > Global Settings >  Password). We would like to know what the impact to the current users. Will this impact existing local users only? How about LDAP users or Radius users?

 

Environment

Release : 3.4.x

Component : PRIVILEGED ACCESS MANAGEMENT

Resolution

Increasing the length of Password Minimum Length in Settings > Global Settings > Password page will be applicable to local users only.

If you have existing local users that the password length lesser than the new setting, the following User Information dialog will be prompted when the local users log in. Users have to change password so it is compliance with the new password minimum length setting before they can login.

However, this setting won't impact LDAP or Radius users.
