This topic explains how to set system-wide security parameters.
Most global security settings, such as the maximum number of failed login attempts to allow, apply to all Security Analytics users and sessions. Settings related to password expiration, such as password expiration period and the default number of days before user passwords expire, apply to internal Security Analytics users, but not external users.
In addition to specifying the global default user expiration period, you can specify if and when internal Security Analytics users receive notification that their passwords are about to expire. The password expiration notification consists of a one-time email and password expiration messages when they log on to Security Analytics.
Configure Security Settings
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Security.
The Security view is displayed with the Users tab open.
- Click the Settings tab.
In the Security Settings section, specify values for the fields as described in the following table.
- Click Apply. The Security Settings take effect immediately. If a password expires, the user receives a prompt to change the password when they log on to Security Analytics.
