Adding a backend user

Not sure where to place this informatin, so I decided to add it here:

For MODX Revolution 2.7.3-pl

Adding a new backend user with the option “enter password” fails. However, when letting MODX suggest a password, the user will be added to the database.

EDIT:
The steps in detail:

  1. Main Menu: Manage > User > Add new User (green button)
    The Domain should end like this:
    …/manager/?a=security/user

  2. Add the minimum information at the tab “general information”.

  3. At the bottom of the form, at the right column, check the radio option “enter password”.

  4. Press “save” (green button at top).

What are the steps to reproduce this issue? Do you get an error message?

Hi, please see my edit at the initial post.

Was the password at least 8 characters long and made up of all alphanumeric characters?

Oh, my bad. I was using the password generator of KeePass and had non-alphabetical characters included. When trying with just alphanumeric characters it all worked fine.
Maybe we could have an error message when the form could not be saved?

BTW: How to make the initial question as “SOLVED”?
