SSPR 3.3.1 with spacebar in password policy


I found that SSPR3.3.1 allows the spacebar as the password.
SSPR uses eDirectory as user repository in my environment and it allows
user to use spacebar as password.
I also use IDM to synchronise password to target application but some
applications are not allowed spacebar password.

So, I want to define _password_policy_with_not_allow_spacebar_ but I
cannot find where is it.

Re: SSPR 3.3.1 with spacebar in password policy

I'm not sure exactly where you have your password policy defined, but if
in eDirectory (presumably using NMAS) you can exclude any single character
by creating an "Excluded Password" of just that value, so if you create an
excluded password which is just a single space, then spaces will not be
allowed anywhere in subsequent passwords.

If you are using SSPR's password policies, then you can use the
"Disallowed Regular Expression Matches (Advanced)" under the policy
defined for users and just have your regular expression there be a single
space with no extra anchors, in which case anything with a single space
will be disallowed.

Good luck.
