Password Policy allows an administrator to set up requirements for passwords. They can be set up globally as Defaults, or set for a specific group of users using Domains.
Password Policy covers a range of different criteria, which are outlined below:
If Yes, an additional field will appear called “Age“. This determines a minimum amount of time before a password can be changed again. Time unit in seconds.
If Yes, an additional “Remember” field will appear. This field allows an administrator to configure the number of passwords stored.
If No, then a “Expires after” field will appear, allowing an administrator to set a duration that determines when passwords expire. Time unit in days.
If Yes, then a “Warn” option will appear. This property allows an administrator to configure when an advanced warning of a password expiration should be exposed. Time unit in days before.
Set a minimum length
If Yes, then a “Minimum of” field will appear. This property allows an Administrator to configure the minimum length of all passwords.
If Yes, then a “Maximum of” field will appear. This property allows an Administrator to configure the maximum length of all passwords.
Must contain a digit (0-9)
If Yes, see “Configure Custom Rule” section below.
Lock accounts due to inactivity
If yes, then a “After inactivity of” field will appear, allowing an administrator to configure how long an account can remain inactive before being locked. Time unit in days.
If yes, see the “Configure Login Failures” section below.
In addition to configuring the global Password Policy for edgeCore, as detailed above, you can also optionally create a separate Password Policy for one or more individual Domains.
To create a custom Password Policy for an individual Domain, do the following:
