How to improve bad password error mesage?


I have setup an OpenLDAP server and gave Confluence write permission to the LDAP. I also defined a password policy, which checks the password quality.

But when I trie to change a password, which does not fullfil the password quality requirements, I get just this error message:

2020-03-04 11_50_40-Set User Password _ sascha.ziemann - K3LS Documentation.png

This says exactly nothing altough Confluence gets a detailed description from the LDAP server, what is wrong here. This is what slapd logs:

slapd[21199]: conn=3698 op=1 RESULT tag=103 err=19 text=Bad password for dn="cn=***" because it is based on a dictionary word

Why is this information not forwarded to the user?

Hi @Sascha Ziemann

I agree that it's not helpful at all. If you feel that Atlassian i should action this, feel free to raise a feature request here:


My experience is, that feature request are effectively useless. They are rotting for years and nothing happens.
