Create Password Policies

Screenshot of the Create Password Policy form.

Password Safe ships with a default password policy used to generate new passwords for auto managed accounts. You can change the settings for the default policy, such as password length and complexity, but you cannot delete the default password policy. You can also create new password policies.

Ensure the policies you create in Password Safe align with password complexity and restrictions in place on the managed system; otherwise, Password Safe might create a password that does not comply with the rules in place on that managed system.

  1. In the BeyondInsight console go to Configuration > Privileged Access Management Policies > Password Policies.
  2. Click Create Password Policy.
  1. Enter a Password Policy Name and Description.
  2. Set the following parameters for your policy:
    • Minimum and Maximum Characters: Use the - and + buttons to incrementally lower or raise the Minimum length and Maximum length of passwords for the selected policy. You can also manually enter the numbers in the text fields. Valid entries are 4 - 255 characters.
    • Select the First Character Value.
    • Uppercase Characters: Use the toggle button to permit or deny the use of uppercase characters in passwords. If uppercase characters are permitted:
      • Set the Minimum number of required uppercase characters using the - and + buttons or by entering a number in the text field.
      • Enter permissible characters in the Allow only the following uppercase characters field.
    • Lowercase Characters: Use the toggle button to permit or deny the use of lowercase characters in passwords. If lowercase characters are permitted:
      • Set the Minimum number of required lowercase characters using the - and + buttons or by entering a number in the text field.
      • Enter permissible characters in the Allow only the following lowercase characters field.
    • Numeric Characters: Use the toggle button to permit or deny the use of numeric characters in passwords. If numeric characters are permitted:
      • Set the Minimum number of required numeric characters using the - and + buttons or by entering a number in the text field.
      • Enter permissible characters in the Allow only the following numeric characters field.
    • Non-Alphanumeric Characters: Use the toggle button to permit or deny the use of non-alphanumeric characters in passwords. If non-alphanumeric characters are permitted:
