How do I change Space in Password with login via LDAP?

Hi everyone,

I can't login to my Splunk account because I have a space at the beginning of my password. We will login to Splunk via LDAP. Does Splunk have a problem with that or is that a Bug?

Thank you very much for any advice.

IMO, spaces in passwords are a bad idea.  White space is treated as delimiter in many places and having your password cut off in the wrong place will only lead to problems.

Hi, I know that, but we have a few Users that have spaces in the password. But this was not my question. Could Splunk deal with spaces in the password? If it should, then we have a bug.. if not then it should be configured in some ways.
