8.3.1

Address Manager administrators can enable and configure a password policy to enforce specific rules when users are setting their passwords.

A password policy is a collection of rules that ensures complexity of user credentials in order to prevent force attacks by increasing the number of possible passwords. Only one password policy can be configured in Address Manager. The configured password policy will be applicable to all configurations in Address Manager and local users (Admin and Non-admin users) only (with either GUI or API access types). Any users created by external authenticators will not be applicable.

Once enabled, the new password policy will be enforced when creating Address Manager users and resetting and changing user passwords. Existing user passwords set prior to the new password policy will still be in effect until a user changes or resets the password.
