Unchecking "force password change" doesn't work

I have unchecked the “force password change” option as shown in the screenshot above, yet new users are still asked to change their password upon their first login. Our Seafile version is 6.1.1.

Have your tried to reboot seafile?

Yes I have. The problem still exists.

I noticed this bug first after I started to use the API to create account on the server (although now even if I created an account from the web interface it still has the same behaviour). I wonder if it’s related.

Just a further update that I tried putting “FORCE_PASSWORD_CHANGE = False” in seahub_settings.py, removing seahub_setting.pyc and restarting Seahub and it didn’t have any effect either.
