What are the validation rules for the Security Question Answer?

Hi,

We habve a custom registration system that uses the API to create new users. Now, some api calls are getting the error, "E0000001API validation failed. Api validation failed: securityAnswer"

What are these rules so that I can validate on the UI before we send this call?

Thanks in advance

Hello Hugo,
 The answer can not be part of the Username or Password. 
If you go through the GUI and attempt to set the value you will also gt a bit more of a verbose reply in the event of a failure.
