IssueHow to enforce password policies when creating users via RSA ClearTrust Administrative API
End users are created as members of a custom RSA ClearTrust administrative group. However, passwords for the users expire immediately, despite the password policy associated with the custom administrative group.
CauseChanging the administrative group through the RSA ClearTrust Administrative API does not change the password expiry date; it must be calculated from the administrative group's password lifetime
ResolutionTo correct this issue, modify the code so a password expiry date is programmatically calculated based on the current time and the password lifetime value associated with the RSA ClearTrust administrative group.
