Security Settings

The Security Settings page enables Admins to specify a password policy for their account.

To specify a password policy for your account:

  1. Specify the Minimum number of days before a password can be changed. The possible values are integers between 0 (default) and 365.
  2. Specify the Number of passwords the system will store in history. The possible values are integers between 0 and 30.
  3. Specify the Days until password expires. The possible values are integers between 0 (default = never expires) and 365. Once a password expires, it must be changed.
  4. If you wish, toggle the Enable password expiry notification switch ON. Then you can optionally change the values of the following parameters:
    • First notification will be sent days prior to password expiry (7 or 14)
    • Number of notifications prior to expiry (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5)
  1. Specify the Minimum password length (in characters). The possible values are integers between 0 and 100.
  2. Select which of the following four rules you want all passwords to satisfy:
  • One or more uppercase characters
  • One or more lowercase characters
  • One or more numbers
  • One or more of these special characters (~ ! @ # $ % ^ & *)
  • Select the Number of rules required — i.e., how many of the rules in the preceding step must be met by each password.
  • Select the Maximum invalid login attempts — i.e., how many times a user can provide an incorrect password before their account is locked out.
  • Click Save.
