If LDAP is configured in Empower 3, do the System Policies under the user account tab apply? - WKB6650

Article number: 6650

ENVIRONMENT

  • Empower 2 Feature Release 5 
  • Empower 3
  • LDAP

ANSWER

Yes, the system policies under the user account tab apply whether you are using LDAP authentication or local authentication. These are global for Empower and independent of how a user logs in, whether local or through LDAP. 

Exception: The following Empower system policies apply only to local user accounts not associated with LDAP accounts. The LDAP server manages these settings for LDAP accounts.

  • Enforce Unique User Passwords
  • Passwords Expire every n days
  • Limit # of Entry Attempts to n tries
  • Enforce Minimum Password Length of characters

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

LDAP support started in Empower 2 Feature Release 5 and up.
