This appendix lists restricted words that you can use to control the content of user passwords. Changes to the password restricted words list can occur when:

  • Teradata Database adds new words to the list as part of a new software release.
  • An administrator adds custom restricted words, or deletes existing restricted words.

Passwords are not subject to these restrictions unless you enable the PasswordRestrictedWords option. For additional information about use of password restricted words, see PasswordRestrictWords.
