Managing Users, Roles, and Groups → About User Accounts → User Settings → User Password Settings
The Passwords page enables you to override system password settings specified in SBM System Administrator. You can override settings for individual users or a set of users.
If you are modifying multiple accounts, click Compare to view the different settings for each account. For guidance, refer to Comparing and Changing User and Group Accounts.
Password overrides apply for on-premise customers using SBM authentication or LDAP authentication first, and then SBM. In the latter case, user passwords must match in SBM and LDAP.
On-demand customers can also override password options.
To override password options for users, clear the Use System Settings check box, and then set the following options as needed:
Select to enable validity settings, and then select the number of days for which passwords are valid.
Select to prevent passwords from expiring. This setting also enables users to log into the system without a password.
When you prevent passwords from expiring, you can select this option to prohibit users from changing their passwords.
Specify, in days, how long passwords are valid and after which users must create new passwords. The default expiration is one day, and the accepted range is one to 999 days.
Indicates the number of days before the user's password expires.
Click this button to reset the timer used to calculate expiration. For example, if the password expiration period is set to 60 days, you can click this button after 55 days to reset the expiration period.
Selected by default, this option does not set length restrictions on passwords. Passwords can have a maximum of 36 characters, however.
Select to require users to create passwords with a minimum number of characters.
Selected by default, this option does not require users to include special characters in their passwords.
Select to require users to include a specified number of special characters in their password. Special characters include punctuation marks, the percent sign, and currency symbols.
Selected by default, this option does not require users to create a sequence of unique passwords. Users cannot use the same password when other settings on this page require them to change their password, however.
Select this option to require users to create a specific number of unique passwords.
Select this option to require at least one number in passwords.
Select this option to require at least one uppercase letter in passwords.
Select this option to require at least one lowercase letter in passwords.
