    Problem Description: Issue with Default Password Policy in B2BI
    v6.1.0.1 dashboard
    Customers with newly created userID are unable to reset their
    password. When they log in for the first time with the newly
    created userID, they are prompted to reset the password.
    However, they receive the error message Old password is

    screen.

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A code fix is provided
    B2BI is expecting the passwords coming from the dashboard to be
    encoded. Seems like the dashboard for change password page is
    sending the passwords without encoding. B2Bi will handle the
    unencoded passwords after this fix.
