GoldMine : Assigning a Password Policy

Another new security measure in GoldMine is the ability to set a password policy. This is done system-wide and applies to all users.

To do this, go to Tools | Configure | System Settings.
Click on the "Password Policy" tab.
You can set a minimum length, whether or not to block after three unsuccessful attempts, and also save a password history that cannot be repeated.

To set up password expiration, this is done on a per-user basis.

1. Go to Tools | Users Settings
2. Change the "Valid for Days" value.

You'll notice the "Next Change" date becomes activated after you choose x number of days.

Caveat; I once worked in a place that forced password changes every month. And as you walked around the office, on virtually every desk (usually on a stickynote) was each users password. So I guess the moral of the story is to use with care.

Coco made a fashion comeback. She updated and re-introduced the Chanel bag, which she called the “2.55,” a reference to the date of creation in February 1955.
