The password policy "Oracle E-Business Suite password policy" is predefined for E-Business Suite systems. You can apply this password policy to user accounts (EBSUser.Password) of an E-Business Suite system.

If the E-Business Suite systems' password requirements differ, it is recommended that you set up your own password policies for each system.
