Since September 2016, we have changed the password expiration interval (PWEXP) from 30 to 60 days.

However, ACIDs created before this procedure maintain the previous interval, even after the user has changed the password. 


When you change the PWEXP() CA top secret control option the expiration interval would have no effect on current users.

Only users who have been created after the change are affected.


TSS REP (acid) PASS (*, 60) allows you to change this interval for an account.
