    Overview

    This document describes how to set sub-user login password rules to regulate sub-users’ login password character types, length, and validity period.

    Note:

    After the login password expires, sub-users will not be able to log in via other login methods and must reset the password.

    Directions

    1. Log in to the CAM console and select Users > User Settings in the left sidebar.

    2. Set the password rule.

      Note:

      • This password rule applies to the password of a sub-user created via a custom method. For example, if you set the rule to "Should contain at least 10 characters of digits and lowercase letters", the password of the sub-user you created should comply with this rule.
      • This rule does not apply to sub-users that log in via WeCom or collaborators.
