Administrative User Setup:
Envysion users who are responsible for user management and security have the ability within our Cloud Authentication to set up policies for managing passwords. Users can set a minimum character length for their users passwords and number of days before automatically expiring a password and forcing the user to reset their password.
Password Expiration is based on the most recent password reset time per user. This means that if today, the Password Expiration is set to 30 days and there are two users, one whose password was reset 15 days ago and another reset yesterday, the first user will be forced to reset their password in 15 days and the second user will require to reset their password in 29 days.
Other password validation criteria including letter, number, and special character requirements is not able to be modified by end users.
