Question:

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"?

Answer:

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.
