How to configure password policy for Druva Cloud Platform Console administrators

This article applies to:

  • Product edition: Druva Cloud Platform.

Overview

A password policy in Druva Cloud Platform (DCP) is a set of rules that encourages the use of strong passwords to ensure added data security. You can define a password policy such that:

  • Strong passwords are mandated. A password is strong if it is at least 12 characters long and contains at least one alphabet [a-z, A-Z], one numeric character [0-9], and one special character.
  • Administrators cannot reuse passwords.
  • The number of login attempts is defined. When this limit is reached, DCP locks the account for an hour.
  • Mandate password change at regular intervals.

  1. Log in to the DCP Console and on its menu bar click the account icon > Settings.
