IdentityMinder Password Error Code in TEWS description field.

Issue:

In an Existing IM environment, web services requests to change passwords return the following in the TEWS Description Field: 

<tews:description>[ERROR 3030] Password is too short. Minimum length is 8. ProcessStep::BLTHValidate TabName: ERRORLEVEL::Error</tews:description>

However, after building an identical Parallel environment with the same software versions, the TEWS response is missing the ERROR 3030 code. Instead this is returned:

<tews:description>Password is too short. Minimum length is 8. ProcessStep::BLTHValidate TabName: ERRORLEVEL::Error</tews:description>

Environment:
Identity Manager 12.6.xAny Platform
Cause:

The reason for the differences between the descriptions is the customization of the error messages. 

The ims exceptions can all be customized in the file: 

\iam_im.ear\custom\resourceBundles\IMSExceptions.properties 

 

 

 

Resolution:

If you customize the IMSEXCEPTIONS.properties file or any other resource file contained within IM's resource bundles, these customizations should also be copied over to the new environments.
