Password Policy updates: Phase 1

As previously announced, we are in the process of implementing security updates to Buzz's default password policy in two phases.

Today we are releasing Phase 1 of this process with the application of the following rules:

  • The setting Number of unsuccessful login attempts before lockout will be set to 10 attempts. This means that if a user enters an incorrect password 10 consecutive times, their account will be locked. For their account to be unlocked, an administrator must reset the users lockout (see How do I override password lockout for a user?) or the user must wait until their lockout expires.
  • The setting Lockout duration will be set to 1 hour (PT1H). This means that if a user has a lockout due to unsuccessful login attempts, they will not be able to login again until 1 hour after the lockout began.

Watch for updates here and in upcoming release notes.


In this release, we also:

  • Improved the field hints for the Editor fields in the Domain Settings screen.
  • Updated the Other Reports screen to reflect the material design updates in the Buzz UI.

Fixed issues

In this release, we:

  • Added a missing validation error message in the Badge Editor.
  • Resolved an issue with allowing students to see "peers who have completed course activities" (Peer Help) Domain Setting.
  • Fixed an issue in Course Settings where removing a newly created variable would also remove the last variable in the list.
  • Fixed an issue in Course Settings where the Edit Variable form's "Done" button was enabled when there were errors on the form.
  • Fixed an issue where replacing an IEP file with a new file with the same filename would not be detected as a change, thus wouldn't enable the Save button.
  • Fixed an issue where users couldn't use the Back button to navigate from a third-party activity to the Needs Grading page.
  • Resolved a background, display-style issue with Gradebook > For Me screens.
  • Fixed an issue where an admin was able to save an IEP without having uploaded a file.
  • Updated various screens in the Admin app to reflect the material design updates in the Buzz UI, including:
