Hi,

We are trying to change the current password and create new one using GPP.

Which impact can we have on users account when we apply the change of password policy ?

    Hi,

    When you change or apply a new policy , it will be applied on the next password change.
    So , the user will still able to use his password if it's not expired, but when ha try to change it , the new password will respect the new policy.

    Please don't forget to mark this reply as answer if it help you to fix your issue

    Correct new password policy will take effect when attempting to login from that point going forward.
