The password dictionary is a text file that contains words that cannot be used as passwords. When an administrator or user creates or changes a user's password, the password is validated against the password dictionary. If the new password matches any words found in the password dictionary, the password is not accepted.

To make a copy of the password dictionary for your deployment, export the dictionary.

Before you begin 

Verify that the password dictionary file is smaller than 200 MB.


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

  2. Click Password Dictionary.

  3. Click the password dictionary that you want to export, and select Export Dictionary File.

  4. Save the dictionary file.
