You can't change the policy - it's set to match the traditional Windows AD domain password policy.
Hi, thanks for that. Is that hard coded in the product, or does it use the local AD password policy. We need to know what the actual password policy is and if we can change it.
as I said, you can't change it.
But what are the settings, and where do they come from. Are they hard coded in the product, or does it come from the AD password policy on the local computer. I just need to know what the password policy is. The application is local government, and their security team want a statement on the password policy thats used.
The product documentation is a bit light on details with this. Everywhere else, you can define a password policy.

Its the policy Microsoft uses, which users should be familier with already. You can't change or alter it (in the current version).
I got this from technet.
- The password is at least six characters long.
- The password contains characters from at least three of the following five categories:
- English uppercase characters (A - Z)
- English lowercase characters (a - z)
- Base 10 digits (0 - 9)
- Non-alphanumeric (For example: !, $, #, or %)
- Unicode characters
- The password does not contain three or more characters from the user's account name.
Thats great, thanks for clarifying that.
