Password Policies

Learn about Couchdrop's password policy management

Couchdrop allows administrators to create comprehensive password policies that enforce good password management to meet security and compliance requirements.

Global Password Policies

Under administration, Couchdrop allows admins to configure a global password policy that applies to all users. This global password policy is managed under Administration --> Security --> Password Policies

Group Password Policies

Password policies can also be explicitly applied to groups. Different groups in Couchdrop can have different policies applied. This provides an additional level of customisation and allows for compliance with SFTP and FTP clients that may not support complex passwords.

Password expiry

Along with managing password complexity, password policies can be configured to expire passwords. Once a password has expired, it will need to be reset, either by an administrator or by the user through the reset password mechanism.
