Attributes Only for New Accounts

In an account template, certain attributes are only applied when creating the account. For example, the Password attribute is a rule expression that defines the password for new accounts. This rule expression never updates the password of an account. Changes to the password rule expression only affect accounts that are created after the rule expression was set.

Similarly, a template rule expression for a read-only account attribute affects only accounts that are created after the rule expression was set. Changing it has no effect on existing accounts.
