The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 on which I am following and adding commentary. The series index for this series of posts is here.
The eleventh Feature of the Day is increase Dynamics GP password maximum length.
This feature see the maximum length of the password usable with Dynamics GP increased from 15 to 21 characters.
Microsoft say that the length of the password in SQL is 21 and this has been matched that so now the maximum password length is the same for Dynamics GP.
I’m not sure where in SQL the length is 21, as in Dynamics GP 2018 RTM, the password length on Users Master (SY01400) is 15 keyable characters; SQL Server supports password lengths of 128 characters.
While 21 characters is an improvement over 15, it would have been nice to see even longer passwords supported.
