Authentication settings

You can use different authentication methods for your organization depending on your needs. You can also reset your authentication settings as necessary.

Password policy

For users on the Insight Platform, you can select a default password policy or create a custom one.

Default password policy

The default Insight Platform password policy requires that all passwords meet these formatting rules:

  • Minimum of 8 characters
  • At least 1 uppercase (A-Z) character
  • At least 1 lowercase (a-z) character
  • At least 1 number (0-9)
  • Must not contain any part of the user's Insight account email address

Options for custom password policies

If you prefer to enforce a custom password policy for your Insight Platform users, these configuration options are available:

  • Minimum password length:
    • 12 characters
    • 16 characters
  • New passwords cannot be the same as the user's previous...
    • 5 passwords
    • 12 passwords
    • Do not enforce this
  • Passwords expire after...
    • 90 days
    • 365 days
    • Never

Reset authentication

If a user loses access to their multi-factor authentication (MFA) application or device, forgets their password, or cannot sign in through single sign-on (SSO), a Platform Administrator can do the following:

  1. In the Insight Platform, select User Management from the left menu.
  2. Search for the user from the Users table.
  3. Click the pencil icon to edit their profile.
  4. Click the Reset link in the upper right corner.

You will see a confirmation banner indicating that the MFA has been reset. The user will receive an email with further instructions on reconfiguring their MFA options.
