Periodic Password Change for Ingress Software

Friday, May 17, 2019 FingerTec 1 Comments



Introduction
Starting from Ingress MySQL version 3.2.0.14, a new function known as ‘Periodic Password Change’ policy has been implemented for system user accounts. It is very important for account owners to change his/her password periodically to prevent any form of unauthorized access due to compromised passwords. Besides, consistently changing one’s password would make the old password irrelevant and unusable.

Steps and Procedures:

To enable the periodic password change policy, go to System Setting > System Parameter Setting > System > Days before password expires.

By default, the option is left blank which means that it is disabled. To enable it, user can either choose 30 days, 60 days or 90 days before the password expires.

For example :

In this sample, 30 days is selected for “Days before password expires”.


Therefore, a user is required to change the password upon login to Ingress when it reaches the 30 days mark.



In changing the password, the password policy has to have adhered.

a.       A minimum of 8 alphanumeric characters.
b.      Has at least 1 capital letter.



Other than periodic password changing, the user also needs to set the initial password by following the policy above in the first time login to Ingress or after resetting the password.
