message does not go away in WLC 9800 -> message: Password lifetime has not been configured for your ID.

we get a popup message after successful login to the c9800-cl web management interface and the message comes by every login..


that’s the message:

Password lifetime has not been configured for your ID. It is recommended to set the password expiry period. Contact your network administrator.




has an idea how to get this message away?


I had already test the config under AAA Advanced / Password Policy / Validity to set "never expries" , I could not find any options to lifetime?!






We are getting this pop up message too. It started happening after setting up TACACS+ logins. But it also shows up on the initial local admin account.


I've done this as well and set it to a value like 1 year and no difference.

Hey guys


just wanted to let you know; I installed IOS-XE 16.12.1s yesterday and this version allows the option to "do not show the message again" after first login:


Cisco IOS-XE 16.12.1s.png¨


At least, you can hide the warning now :-)


Best regards


Has anyone solved this problem ? On 16.2.3 it still happens

So when you hide the warning, it still shows? I get that because the username that you use to login doesn’t not have the policy defined. Try to create a new admin login with that policy define and login with that credentials and see if you get the alert.

Hi Scott,

thanks for your reply. I´m doing Authentication via TACACS+  (which is working). But i also want to configure a local user in case TACACS+ or network fails. 


If i´m not configuring a local user i get:

Password lifetime has not been configured for your ID. It is recommended to set the password expiry period. Contact your network administrator.


If i have an local user configured (with the same username) and a AAA password-profile bound (lifetime 1 year)

aaa common-criteria policy TEST
min-length 18
max-length 127
numeric-count 3
upper-case 3
lower-case 3
char-changes 5
lifetime year 1


I`ll get:

Your password has expired. To access this application, you are required to change your password now.


Thanks in advance

Never use a username that also is used in Tacacs login. Your local username should be unique. Did you try to hide the message?
I still have the message on all my controllers... I didn’t hide it and I didn’t set any policies as it doesn’t really bother me.

I just created a policy and applied that policy to a new test admin user and logged in with that account and didn't get the message. I'm running 17.2 by the way, also the other accounts that I don't want to expire doesn't have the policy applied still gets the message.

Keep in mind that things was changed/fixed in 17.2.1 that would cause issues when upgrading or downgrading. Look at the show run and the command line for the user account. The top example (from the UI) will cause errors when you upgrade/downgrade, you will need to use the cli to edit the user account as the example show below. -username privilege 15 common-criteria-policy wlan-profile-name password 6 -username privilege 15 common-criteria-policy password 6
