Password Strength and Aging for Author Instance? CQ5.5?

Avatar

Level 1

Hello,

We use CQ5.5 and have one single Author instance that replicates to two publish instances.

Our users (Authors) are stored locally on the CQ5.5 Author instance, NOT in LDAP.

There appears to be no requirements for password strength or aging in the CQ5.5 Author instance.

Would someone please let me know how we can implement enforcement of password requirements such as strength and aging for our Authors passwords?

Thank you.

Chris,

CQ does not contain such features ootb. If you have such requirements you would normally use an identity management system like a LDAP server, which can implement such rules quite easy.

Please try using a validator/regular expression on your password control/textbox
