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 NetWitness Platform users and sessions. Settings related to passwords in the Password Strength section, such as password expiration period and the default number of days before user passwords expire, apply to internal NetWitness Platform users, but not external users.
Configure Security Settings
- In NetWitness Platform, go to ADMIN > 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 NetWitness Platform.
