Usage Guidelines

You can change the passwords with different complexities based on whether the password complexity check function is enabled (queried using passwordcomplexity command).

  • When the password complexity check function is disabled, the password can be empty or a string of any characters less than 20 characters.
  • When the password complexity check function is enabled, the password must meet the following requirements:
    • Must contain 8 to 20 characters.
    • Must contain at least one space or one of the following special characters:


    • Must contain at least two types of the following characters:
  • Letters: a to z
  • Letters: A to Z
  • Digits: 0 to 9
    • Must not be the user name or the user name in reverse order.

Administrators have the right to change the passwords of all users, and operators and common users have the permission to change only their own passwords. While changing the passwords, the password of the current user is needed.
