Setting password policies

Setting user password policies for criteria such as size, complexity, or expiration is a security best practice that makes it difficult for would-be attackers to brute-force or guess passwords. Your organization may also mandate this practice as a security control.

If you are a Global Administrator, you can create a password policy by taking the following steps:

  1. On the Administration page, click Users > Password Policy.
  2. Enter a unique name in the name textbox to help you identify the policy.
  3. Select values for the following password attributes as desired:
    • Days to Expire
    • Minimum Length
    • Maximum Length
    • Special Characters
    • Numbers
    • Capital Letters
  4. Click Save Password Policy.

If you set a expiration window, the expiration date and time appears in the Users table, which you can see by selecting Manage users link for Users on the Administration page.
