Thread: the rules for an valid password for this forum are strange

  1. #1

    Exclamation the rules for an valid password for this forum are strange

    to open this account i did try to use this character string like password
    Code:
    )xrmjrp]+@~g#m4i[&xo{8&n<x(@!vnyamg=]k+&/)'",!gp,ksth4
    but the rules say it has invalid characters

    maybe forum admins want to look into the rules set for valid passwords

    Did you try narrowing it down? My guess would be on things that are
    commonly used as attacks of one sort or another, meaning a single-quote,,
    less-than sign, double-quote, maybe even an ampersand.

    Also, are you setting the password within VBulletin (the forum software)
    or via some backend (the Micro Focus site stuff)? If the former, do not
    bother, as it is not ever used; the latter seems more-likely, but the
    latter does not restrict any particular types of characters I am pretty
    sure, so that makes me think you are on the former which is just a waste
    of time.

    I'll just note that logins and password are really managed at "microfocus.com".
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5.18.6;

    Yup. These forums don't deal with passwords (and that's great!). It's all
    managed via SUSE single sign on (Access Manager) and created/validated there.
    It's an openSUSE web site thing so feedback and questions about it should be
    sent to the web site administrator: admin@opensuse.org.
