Custom scripts for password requirements

You can implement custom scripts for testing and generating passwords if the password requirements cannot be mapped with the existing settings options. Scripts are applied in addition to the other settings.

Detailed information about this topic

Checking passwords with a script

You can implement a script if additional policies need to be used for checking a password that cannot be mapped with the available settings.

Syntax of check scripts

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

With parameters:

policy = password policy object

spwd = password to check

TIP: To use a base object, take the Entity property of the PasswordPolicy class.

Example: Script that checks a password

A password cannot start with ? or ! . The password cannot start with three identical characters. The script checks a given password for validity.

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

Dim pwd = spwd.ToInsecureArray()

If pwd.Length>0

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

Throw New Exception(#LD("Password can't start with '?' or '!'")#)

End If

End If

If pwd.Length>2

If pwd(0) = pwd(1) AndAlso pwd(1) = pwd(2)

Throw New Exception(#LD("Invalid character sequence in password")#)

End If

End If

End Sub

To use a custom script for checking a password

  1. In the Designer, create your script in the Script Library category.

  2. Edit the password policy.

    1. In the Manager, select the Cloud target systems > Basic configuration data > Password policies category.

    2. On the Scripts tab, enter the name of the script to be used to check a password in the Check script field.

    3. Save the changes.

Generating passwords with a script

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 Entity property of the PasswordPolicy class.

Example: Script that generates a password

In random passwords, this script replaces the invalid characters ? and ! at the beginning of a password with _.

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

To use a custom script for generating a password

  1. In the Designer, create your script in the Script Library category.

  2. Edit the password policy.

    1. In the Manager, select the Cloud target systems > Basic configuration data > Password policies category.

    2. On the Scripts tab, enter the name of the script to be used to generate a password in the Generating script field.
