USAGE

The simple_password_check_letters_same_case system variable can have its default value configured via SkySQL Configuration Manager.

DETAILS

The simple_password_check_letters_same_case system variable is one of the system variables that controls how the simple_password_check plugin validates new passwords:

  • If a user tries to create a user account with the CREATE USER or GRANT statements and the specified password has fewer letter characters in either upper case or lower case than the configured value, then the password will be rejected, and the user account will not be created.

  • If a user tries to set a user account password with the SET PASSWORD, ALTER USER, or GRANT statements and the password has fewer letter characters in either upper case or lower case than the configured value, then the password will be rejected, and the user account password will not be changed.

  • With the default locale, an upper case letter character is any character in the range A-Z and a lower case letter character is any character in the range a-z.
