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