Secure your user's information with greater control over password requirements.

To set your password policy:

  1. Open the vertical menu in the toolbar of Domain Details.  
  2. Select Domain Settings.
  1. On the Authentications card, edit the relevant fields:
    • Minimum password length: This number represents the lowest number of characters the password must contain.
    • Minimum character classes used: This number represents the minimum number (up to four) of character classes (lowercase, uppercase, numbers, and special symbols) the password must contain.
    • Number of unsuccessful login attempts before lockout: This number represents the number of failed logins before the user is locked out.  
    • Lockout duration: This duration can be set in various units (days, years, months, etc.) and must be entered using ISO designators (see section below). You can manually override password lockouts if necessary.
    • Password expiration: This determines how ofter you require users to reset their passwords. This duration can be set in various units (days, years, months, etc.) and must be entered using International Organization for Standardization (ISO) designators (see section below).
    • Prevent password reuse interval: This determines how long one must wait before reusing a password. This duration can be set in various units (days, years, months, etc.) and must be entered using ISO designators (see section below).
  2. Save.
ISO duration designators

ISO duration designators

ISO durations use one-letter designators and a simple format to indicate standardized time intervals. To enter a duration:

  1. Enter P (period) if you want to use days, weeks, months, or years as your unit of time, and PT (period, time) if you want to use seconds, minutes, or hours.
  2. Enter the number of units that you want to use.
  3. Enter the desired time unit designators:
    • D (days), W (weeks), M (months), Y (years) if you used P.
    • S (seconds), M (minutes), H (hours) if you used PT.
