Setting Expiration for Passwords - Password Policies

Modified on Thu, 14 Mar 2024 at 09:27 AM

In Actionstep, you can define password policies and assign them to System Roles. Password policies are a set of options, requirements, and restrictions for passwords. This article will explain how to set up a password policy that will cause the password to expire in a set-time interval.

Creating the Password Policy

To create a password policy, navigate to Admin > Users & permission > Password policies (right-sidebar) and select the Add policy button. This will launch the Add password policy window. For this example, we will be setting the options in the General settings section.

First, we will give the policy a name that is easy to understand. For a policy that causes the password to expire every 60 days, we can call it Expire in 60 Days or something similarTo further support the understanding of the purpose of this policy, we can give it a description that explains the settings. Next, we'll se the Expiry (days) to 60 and the Repeat password limit to 3. Finally, we will save the policy.

Assigning the Policy to a System Role

Password Policies are assigned to system roles. For this example, we will set this policy for our User system role.

To do this, go to Admin > Users & permissions > System roles. Select the system role for which you want to set the policy. On the Edit system role screen, select the Password policy and save.

Now, each user with that system role will have that policy enforced for their password.
