Issue with setting password Strength Regular Expression


#1

Hi,

  1. I wanted to set the passwordStrengthRegularExpression to an existing FBA setup which already has users in it, will it work and is there any downfall to it.

2)I also tried setting up the passwordStrengthRegularExpression and it does not seem to be working at all, even after I set the passwordStrengthRegularExpression it still allows me to create a simple password, what I am missing ?

  1. It will work with existing users, but it won’t affect their existing passwords. It gets applied to the membership request web part and the change password web part, so the next time they go to change their password they would be required to use a new password that matches the regular expression.

  2. Every time i’ve used it, it has worked fine for me - maybe test with the regular expression shown here:
