      Description

      Issue:

      Password Validator Message not shown when changing your password under your user profile.

       

      Steps to reproduce:

      1) Setup Nexus to have Password validation:

      nexus.password.validator=^(?=.*[0-9])(?=.*[a-z])(?=.*[A-Z])(?=.*[@$!%*#?&]).{8,}$
      nexus.password.validator.message=Passwords must contain a lowercase letter, an uppercase letter, a special character, a number and minimum length of 8.
      

      https://help.sonatype.com/repomanager3/system-configuration/user-authentication/local-authentication#LocalAuthentication-EnforcingPasswordRequirementsYellowNEWIN3.25

      2) Login as a user

      3) Change your password to a password that would fail validation (do this through user profile section).

      User profile -> Account -> Change password to password that would fail validation.

      You will see "Change Password failed" with no text from "nexus.password.validator.message".

      Expected Behaviour:

      If password validation failed then it is expected that text in nexus.password.validator.message.

      nexus.password.validator.message=Passwords must contain a lowercase letter, an uppercase letter, a special character, a number and minimum length of 8.
      

       

      Note:

      If the password is changed under Security User section, then the validation text is correctly shown.

      Security -> Users -> some user -> Change password -> password that fails validation
