9231: The password specified is invalid.

asked on November 23

This is a message you can get when trying to change your password as a Laserfiche User. No matter what is typed for a password it thinks it is invalid and will not take anything which means they can not change their password. What does it mean by invalid?

What's the password policy that's configured, if any? Do passwords have to meet a minimum length and/or character type requirement? Is there a password history list where you can't reuse the previous x number of passwords?

Please verify that the new password that's being set is one that meets the configured password policy.

We will have to wait for an administrator to check that and get back to us. The error mentions no specifics about policies or password requirements which need to be met so the specific user is locked out because they are told they need to change their password before they can login.

I asked them to type an entire sentence just to try something different and long and it still says it is invalid. There really is no way to know how to proceed as a user until their administrator returns, so for now they are locked out.

There are only four relevant password policy configuration areas. See Complexity Requirements and Password History.

  1. Minimum number of character sets
  2. Minimum password length
  3. Reject passwords containing the user name
  4. Password history - prevent re-use of old passwords

Entering "an entire sentence" could still violate #1 or #3.

Got it, I have seen all those configurations before, we need an admin to clarify this for us though. I wish the error could have been more specific or allowed them to at least login under their old password until an administrator could come and assist.
