Appspace comes with advanced account security features that may be enabled by administrators for on-prem deployments. These include the options to enforce a maximum number of failed attempts before a user’s account becomes locked as well as requiring user passwords to conform to meet certain complexity requirements to be deemed acceptable.

This guide will cover two key security features:

Prerequisites

  3. Once enabled, you can define the maximum number of attempts before a user’s account becomes locked.
  4. Click Save, and Yes to confirm settings.
  5. The system should automatically detect a change to the Appspace settings and prompt you with a notification at the top of the page. Click the Click Here link.
