Script for generating a password

You can implement a generating script if additional policies need to be used for generating a random password, which cannot be mapped with the available settings.

Syntax for generating script

Public Sub CCC_PwdGenerate( policy As VI.DB.Passwords.PasswordPolicy, spwd As System.Security.SecureString)

With parameters:

policy = password policy object

spwd = generated password

TIP: To use a base object, take the property Entity of the PasswordPolicy class.
Example for a script to generate a password

In random passwords, the script replaces the ? and ! characters, which are not permitted.

Public Sub CCC_PwdGenerate( policy As VI.DB.Passwords.PasswordPolicy, spwd As System.Security.SecureString)

Dim pwd = spwd.ToInsecureArray()

' replace invalid characters at first position

If pwd.Length>0

If pwd(0)="?" Or pwd(0)="!"

spwd.SetAt(0, CChar("_"))

End If

End If

End Sub
