Password Policy Configuration Example

Last Updated: Oct 26, 2020

Summary

This guide covers how to modify the password policy configured under an owner. The rules set in the policy define user password requirements (password length, the characters that are permitted or required in the password) as well as other password related settings such as how long user accounts are locked out after entering an incorrect password too many times and how often passwords need to be reset.

For additional details on the fields presented on this screen see the Owner Configuration screen help guide.

Prerequisites

  • Password policies can be setup immediately, there are no prerequisite configuration steps

Sample Configuration

  1. Log into your LogiSense Billing application

  2. Click on the Setup menu, User & Accounts and then Owners

  3. On the owner screen that loads click on the Password Policy tab on the left

  4. Adjust the password policy as needed. For example, you could set passwords to expire every quarter and adjust the ‘Reset Period Length’ (lockout after too many failed logins) to 10 minutes. The image below shows these sample adjustments

  5. When you have finished making adjustments to the policy click Save to commit your changes

Result

When setting a password on a user the system will adhere to the policy you have defined.
