Password Policy

< appboard | 2.4 | builder | system administration

The Password Policy administration page provides an interface for the AppBoard administrator to view and manage the global password policy. The product also support per-domain password policies but these must be configured via the enPortal administration interface.

To access the Password Policy administration page select the System Administration builder mode and the Password Policy icon.

Password policies apply to users managed within AppBoard / enPortal. For LDAP users, or other custom authentication integrations, password management is outside the scope of AppBoard
