Hello @Rahul18081,


The passwords in the database are stored in an encrypted fashion using a commvault proprietary 2-way decrypt/encrypt method.

Commvault can provide you the decrypted password if required when you open a TR and go through the official approval process.


Regarding password expiration, complexity and other related questions it might be worth reading this documentation reference:
