Under General, you will find the option Settings, which allows the user(s) to set certain parameters concerning the profile.
Under the "Passwords" tab, you have control over how you want the application to control user passwords.
This setting determines the minimum number of characters a password should contain.
The default value is 8.
For example, if the Minimum Password Length is set to 6, then the password must contain at least 6 characters.
This setting determines the minimum number of days a password must be in use before it can be changed. Only when the minimum password age expires, users are allowed to change their password. It ensures that users don’t change their password too often. The value can be set between 0 (disabled) and 720 days.
The default value is 1.
For example, if the Minimum Password Age is set to 10, then the user cannot change his/her password for 10 days after the last password change.
This setting is used to ensure the effectiveness of Enforce Password History setting. If the Minimum Password Age is set to 0 (disabled), then the user can change his/her password until the value set for Enforce Password History is reached and reuse his/her favorite old password. By setting the Minimum Password Age to a certain value, a user cannot change his/her password often enough to render the Enforce Password History setting ineffective.
The value for Minimum Password Age should always be less than the Maximum Password Age.
This setting determines the maximum number of days a password can be used. Once the Maximum password age expires, users must change their password. It ensures users don't stick with one password forever. The value can be set between 0 (disabled) and 720 days.
The default is 360 days.
For example, if the value is set to Disabled, then the password never expires, and the user is not required to change his/her password ever.
This setting determines the number of new passwords that have to be set, before an old password can be reused. It ensures that old passwords are not used continuously by users which will render the Minimum Password Age policy setting useless.
The default value is 10.
For example, if the Enforce Password History value is set to 10, then the user must set 10 different password when the password expires before setting his/her password to an old value.
If the value is set to Disabled, then the password history is not remembered, and the user can reuse their old password when their password expires.
This setting determines whether the password must meet the complexity requirements specified. If this setting is enabled, passwords must meet the following requirements:
Not contain the user's account name or part of the user's full name that exceed two consecutive characters
The password contains characters from at least three of the following four categories:
English uppercase characters (A - Z)
English lowercase characters (a - z)
Base 10 digits (0 - 9)
Non-alphanumeric (for example: $, #, or %)
By default, this setting is disabled.
