Property Description Change interval The amount of time (in minutes) that a password must be in use before it can be changed. The value 0 allows changes immediately. Minimum length The minimum number of characters that a local user password can contain. The value 0 means password length validation will be skipped. Minimum number of characters to be changed The minimum number of characters that need be changed in a password. The value 0 means there is no minimum required. History rule The number of unique passwords that must be associated with a local user before an old password can be reused. Expire time The number of days that a password can be in use before ViPR requires a password change. Default is 0, which means password expiry is disabled.
When enabling Expire Time, set a value larger than 14, to account for the grace period.Be sure to configure root and svcuser email (under username > Preferences) before enabling Expire Time, so that password expiration warning emails are received.
