See also: System Variables for MariaDB Enterprise Server 10.6, in 10.5 ES, and in 10.4 ES

USAGE

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

DETAILS

The simple_password_check_other_characters 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 other characters 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 other characters than the configured value, then the password will be rejected, and the user account password will not be changed.

  • An other character is any valid character that is not considered a digit or a letter. For definitions of digit and letter characters, see the details of the simple_password_check_digits and simple_password_check_letters_same_case system variables.
