IssueHow to set the number of challenge question attempts before a successful authentication.
Resolution1. Log in to Backoffice.
2. Go to  Administration--> Authentication Methods, the field The Question - Acceptable Match Count

This field determines how many questions the end user must answer correctly when the system presents multiple questions. For example, if the system presents three questions and acceptableMatchCount=2, the end user must answer two out of three questions correctly so that the Adaptive Authentication system can return a successful challenge response.
