Password Preferences

Password Preferences provide clients the ability to select various combinations of settings to determine the desired password login experience. These requirements can vary by organizational unit.

The password preferences allow the administrator to specify the settings for users to change their own password, or for the system to generate an anonymous password, set the specific password requirements and allowing users to reset password by answering security questions.

To manage Password Preferences, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Core Preferences > Passwords.

There are two tabs within the Password Preferences screen, the General tab and the Password Reset Options tab. Select the appropriate preference settings and click Submit.
