I have SS 2.4.0 and when a add a member in the admin security and i want to connect to this new member, SS always ask me a new password.

In my DB, i see that user have a PasswordExpiry set to the creation date (and not NULL). Only an ADMIN member have a NULL PasswordExpiry.

How to always set to NULL PasswordExpiry ?

Thank for your help,

It's NULL in my db's and the users are not constantly prompted for new passwords - or I'd hear about it!

You might try upgrading as 2.4.0 is rather out of date... maybe that will fix things up

Thanks for your response but i found my error. I used a custom class to replace 'Date'

Object::useCustomclass('Date', 'MyDate');

But in "MyDate", i always return a default date : today. But when you create a user and you use "Date", the date is set to "NULL", not today like in my "MyDate" class :-)
