9.9(2.50)

Description (partial)

Symptom:
The documentation regarding the BGP password format does not seem to be  correct. The link to the document  is as follows:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa99/configuration/general/asa-99-general-config/route-bgp.html

From the document, we see following lines regarding BGP password format : 
"The first character cannot be a number. You cannot specify a password in the format number-space-anything. The space after the number can cause authentication to fail"

However, customer is using  number as the first character in his BGP password and it works without any issues . I have also replicated the same in my lab and I am successfully able to configure first  character as the number in the BGP password between the two ASAs and the BGP neighbourship  is established successfully .
