Password policies can help to enhance the security of your portal. Using password policies, you can set password rules such as password strength, frequency of password expiration, and more. Additionally, you can apply different rule sets to different sets of portal users.
If you are viewing a page other than the Control Panel, go up to the Dock and select the Control Panel. Next, click on the Password Policies link on the left side of the screen in the Portal category. You will see that there is already a default password policy in the system. You can edit this in the same manner as you edit other resources in the portal: click Actions and then click Edit. You will then see the Password Policy settings form:
Changeable: Selects whether a user can change his or her password.
Change Required: Selects whether a user must change his or her password upon first log in.
Minimum Age: You can choose how long a password must remain in effect before it can be changed.
Syntax Checking: Allows you to choose whether dictionary words can be in passwords as well as the minimum password length.
Password History: Keeps a history (with a defined length) of passwords and won't allow users to change their passwords to one that was previously used.
Password Expiration: Lets you choose an interval where passwords can be active before they expire. You can select the age, the warning time, and a grace limit.
Lockout: Allows you to set the number of failed log in attempts before a user's account becomes locked. You can choose whether an administrator needs to unlock the account or if it becomes unlocked after a specific duration. From the list of password policies, you can perform several other actions.
Edit: Brings you to the form above and allows you to modify the password policy.
Permissions: This allows you to define which Users, User Groups, or Roles have permissions to edit the Password Policy.
Assign Members: Takes you to a screen where you can search and select users in the portal to be assigned to this password policy. The password policy will be enforced for any users who are added here.
Delete: This shows up for any password policies that you add beyond the default policy. You cannot delete the default policy.
