Learn how to configure new Password Format Control Policies (PFCP) on the EAM console in a few clicks .
The Password Format Control Policies define the number of characters, the minimum and maximum lengths and the types of characters required to provide a valid password when authenticating on an application.
To perform the tasks described, you must have at least the following administration role:
In the tree structure of the Directory panel, right-click the organizational unit that must contain your PFCP and select NewPassword Control Policy.
Click the Advanced Policy button to add forbidden character sequences:
Select the following check boxes:
New and current passwords can't have the same characters at the same position to force the order modification of the characters. Example: if this check box is selected and the old password was apricot, then the new password cannot be apple but parrot for example.
This option is case sensitive to authorize or forbid upper case or lower case letters to be considered as identical letters in the password. Example: If the check box is not selected, then a=A.
Password cannot contain the user's login or display name to prevent the user from using his name or login (sAMAccountName) to create his password. This restriction applies to names longer than 3 characters. Example: the password of John Fab Smith can neither contain John nor Smith but can contain Fab.
This option is available only with Microsoft directories.
Use the Add and Remove buttons to manage the forbidden character sequences, such as QWERTY or 12345.
