I have created a new user account (Michael) and tried both: 1) set a password 2) require user to reset password.I set the Privilege Set to Data Entry Only. After doing a "Save Copy as" or my logging out (Admin) and logging back in as that user, either way, the password is changed from an 9-character password (AppleMike) to a 20-character (unknown) password. How do you make a password for a user to stick?
The password is "sticking". FileMaker uses a standard number of bullet characters for the password no matter what password is specified for the account. This is a security feature to make guessing a password harder to do.
