Set Password Policies

Objectives for this Resource:

A user will become locked by violating the maximum invalid login attempts setting (defined in password policies).

A user can become unlocked either by an administrator manually unlocking the user or by waiting for the lockout effective period to pass.

For example, James Smith attempts to log in 3 times (which is the maximum invalid login attempts setting) and is then locked out.  He can wait 15 minutes (the lockout effective period) and try again, or contact an administrator to unlock his account manually.

“Maximum invalid login attempts: The number of login failures allowed for a user before they become locked out.”
