SAP IDM : Using regex for password

Hi experts,

I need your help about regex.

We are trying to use this to be sure that password set in Web inteface by users are correct according to the company policies :

- The first character cannot be a number

- The three first characters cannot be the same

We finally found the following expression to test what we want (reponse is "true" when one of the policies is ok) :


But IDM never accept any password with that expression.

So my questions are :

1) Does IDM need a special regex language or is it the same than PERL language for example?

2) Does anybody know how to use regex in our policies case?

Thanks a lot for your response.
