Access management mechanisms make it possible to define factors about how users and the system employ passwords.
The administrator can set up these options by going to the "Security" section of the "Settings" tab.
Captio allows one to configure the following options.
- Obligatory use of uppercase / lowercase letters and special characters: configurable by the administrator at the environment level. The minimum required by Captio is that the password have 8 characters, and include a number and a letter. The administrator can require passwords to have at least one uppercase letter and/or a symbol.
- Expiration of the password: Configurable by the administrator at the environment level. The administrator can set a password time limit. Once this period has passed the user will have to establish a new password when accessing Captio.
- Restriction against repeating previous passwords: configurable by the administrator at the environment level. The administrator can set the number of previous passwords that cannot be repeated.
- Blocking due to incorrect access attempts. Configurable by the administrator at the environment level. The administrator can set the number of consecutive incorrect access attempts that users can make before their accounts are blocked. Once the account is blocked, only the administrator can unblock it, possibly requiring a new password, at his discretion. This action will be carried out on each specific user in the "Users" tab.
Clicking on "Save" will activate the new configuration.
In the "Users" tab, the administrator may require a user to establish a new password. If activated, the user must establish a new password when accessing Captio again. Once the new password has been set, the feature is automatically deactivated.
