After the 3 addition TPX patches were applied to our test box I was able to sign on to the primary TPX ppanel. However, while the Password field now shows a "PASSCODE" as expected, the new password field still shows "NewPassword". Shouldn't this also now show "NewPasscode"?


The new version of TEN1003 panel (AKA LOGO PANEL) for Logon is composite for handling users who could be password user, Passphrase user or a MFA/AAM user. Thus, we change name of the field to Passcode to cover user entering password or password phrase (aka passphrase) or a MFA/AAM string composed of TOKEN only or of TOKEN+PIN or of PIN+TOKEN by the passcode field. However, we expect only password or password phrase having a NEW field (new password). Thus, we did not change the field name and keeping it at New Password.
