7.4 Editing a Password Policy

You can change a password policy by adjusting the parameters of each rule, or by having no parameters for a rule.

  1. Access the Administration Management Utility.

    For information on accessing the Administrative Management utility, see Accessing iManager in the Novell SecureLogin Installation Guide and, or, iManager Plug-In.

  2. Click Password Policies. The Password policies page is displayed.

  3. Click the password policy that you want to change. The policy details are displayed.

  4. In the Description column, locate the description you want to change, then in the Value column, select the appropriate value from the drop-down list.

    IMPORTANT:If you are using the application definition wizard to create and edit password policies, the values of the password policy cannot be changed.

    For example, when creating a new password policy if the value of Disallow repeated characters is set to No, you cannot change it later through the wizard.

    This is an expected behavior. You must use the Administrative Management Utility to create and edit the password policy. We do not recommend using the wizard.

  5. Click Apply to save changes.

  6. Click OK to close the Administrative Management utility.
