webCOMAND Login Policy
It also defines settings for password requirements, reset password email templates and more, which can be customized to your specific requirements and preferences.
The following functionality is provided through the standard Login Controllers, which can be customized as noted below.
- Login - Basic username and password login with automated blocking functionality based on a security policy with:
- IP Attempt Threshold - Number of failed login attempts allowed from a specific IP address, before additional requests from that IP are blocked.
- Account Attempt Threshold - Number of failed login attempts allowed from a account (username), before additional attempts for that username are blocked.
- IP/User Agent Threshold - Number of failed login attempts allowed from a specific IP address and User Agent, before additional requests from that IP and User Agent are blocked. This is similar to the IP Attempt Threshold but will be able to differentiate between different users sharing the same IP address, assuming they are using different User Agents (ie. web browsers, web browser versions or web browser configurations).
- Change - Ability for users to change their password. Change password has similar security policy options as Login above.
- Reset - Ability for users to start the reset password process for themselves (aka "forgot password"), and administrators to start the process for any user. Change password has similar security policy options as Login above.
- Welcome Email - An email template to use when a Welcome Email is sent to a new or existing user. This is triggered from the Manage tab within a User View.
- Reset Code Email - An email template to use when a Reset Code is sent to an existing user. It may be sent by the user in the "forgot password" process, or an administrator from the Users App (Manage tab in the User View).
- Reset Success Email - An email template to use to send an email notification once the uses password has been successfully reset.
- Reset Check - Whether to check just the user's email, username, or both when starting the Forgot Password workflow.
