Policy settings

Define the following settings for a password policy on the Password tab.

Table 25: Policy settings

Property

Meaning

Initial password

Initial password for newly created user accounts. The initial password is used if a password is not entered when you create a user account or if a random password is not generated.

Password confirmation

Reconfirm password.

Minimum Length

Minimum length of the password. Specify the number of characters a password must have. If the value is 0, no password is required.

Max. length

Maximum length of the password. Specify the number of characters a password can have. The maximum permitted value is 256.

Max. errors

Maximum number of errors. Set the number of invalid passwords attempts. The number of failed logins is only taken into account when logging in to One Identity Manager. If the value is 0, the number of failed logins is not taken into account.

This data is only taken into account if the One Identity Manager login was through a system user or employee based authentication module. If a user has exceeded the maximum number of failed logins, the employee or system user will not be able to log in to One Identity Manager.

You can use the Password Reset Portal to reset the passwords of employees and system users who have been blocked. For more information, see the One Identity Manager Web Designer Web Portal User Guide.

Validity period

Maximum age of the password. Enter the length of time a password can be used before it expires. If the value is 0, then the password does not expire.

Enter the number of passwords to be saved. If, for example, a value of 5 is entered, the user's last five passwords are stored. If the value is 0, then no passwords are stored in the password history.

Minimum password strength

Specifies how secure the password must be. The higher the password strength, the more secure it is. The value 0 means that the password strength is not tested. The values 1, 2, 3 and 4 specify the required complexity of the password. The value 1 represents the lowest requirements in terms of password strength. The value 4 requires the highest level of complexity.

Name properties denied

Specifies whether name properties are permitted in the password. If this option is set, name properties are not permitted in passwords. The values of these columns are taken into account if the Contains name properties for password check option is set. In the Designer, adjust this option in the column definition.
