JTS/RTC List of supported characters in passwords


Nico Vasquez (11) | asked May 31 '22, 9:18 a.m.

Is there a list of supported/unsupported characters that can appear in passwords in RTC?


I only found documents of the allowed characters for other IBM products, but not for Rational Team Concert.
There were problems before with users that couldn't login because their password contained "§" for example. 
We are currently using version 6.0.6.1 (iFix023) with LDAP as an external user registry.

 I am not aware of such a list. In addition, in your setup the password is not even maintained in the Jazz system. It is maintained in your LDAP system and authentication is delegated to it as well. I would check with your LDAP system, if there is any documentation about forbidden characters.
