The password dictionary is a text file that contains words that cannot be used as passwords. Your deployment supports one password dictionary. To change password dictionaries, or to remove a dictionary that is not in use, delete the password dictionary.

Before you begin 

Verify whether the password dictionary you want to delete is in use. Check the Exclude Words Dictionary field for each security domain password policy. For more information, see View a Password Policy.


  1. In the Security Console, click Setup > System Settings.

  2. Click Password Dictionary.

  3. Click the password dictionary that you want to delete, and select Delete.

  4. Click OK to confirm the deletion.
