Mandatory "new accounts password change" allows same password to be entered
The following FileCloud settings are set:
Allow Password Change = TRUE
New accounts Must Change Password = checked (ie: enabled)
Number of Previous Passwords that cannot be used = 1
As the admin, I added(created) the following new user (ie: Limited User in my example):
The user then attempts to log into FileCloud and is prompted to change his password (as expected) by entering "Old/New/Confirm Password" values.
If the user enters the same old password value (pswd1234) as the "new/confirm" password values then FileCloud accepts the password change:
When the ADMIN "New accounts must change password" setting is enabled then this should force the user to enter a "new" password and not simply allow them to enter the same password. Technically, the user did not really "change" their password if the same old password is still being used.
I am planning on providing our external customers an easy password when their account is first created, but then rely on FileCloud to ensure they enter a "new" password during initial login, thus ensuring the password I provided is switched out.
