Hi Team,

We have defined the password policy for one application. Whenever user is raising the reset account password request from ARS , On the change password screen, user is receiving the below error(password does not match regex). It is because of entered password is not matching the password policy.  If we give the matching password here we won't get any disclaimer/exception and it will allow us to next step . 

Requirement : Is there anyway to  display  what are all the special characters are allowed (so that user can choose only those special characters) on the change password screen ? like how it showing for min special characters :1 and min password length :20  .

Hi @AravindK ,

In the password policy you created, there is a Regex Description field where you can enter the information about all the special characters that are allowed.

For Example -

In the below Password Policy, I have set the Regex Description as -

'Password must not start with a special character. Must contain at least 1 Upper Case, 1 Lower Case, 1 Number and 1 Special Character (~@#$%^&)'

On the password screen it will show up as -

This is the only way to show what all special characters are allowed in the password for the end user.



As per the guide : https://docs.saviyntcloud.com/bundle/EIC-Admin-v2021x/page/Content/Chapter02-Identity-Repository/Cre...

The only option is you can provide plain text under Regex Description. This message is static
